In the second half of this week's URN Sport podcast, Sam, Calum, Ben and James cover in-depth the men's football club's ban from Varsity 2015. The guys take a look at the storm surrounding the story, hear from Sports Editor Patrick on the events, and after listening to the football club's statement in response to the ban, the panel engage in a debate with each other and the listeners over whether the Students' Union has got the disciplinary action right.

The Nottingham University Swimming Club has over 100 members, both competitive and casual swimmers training in the university’s Olympic sized pool. Swimming varsity has only been going for the last three years and both years prior to this, Nottingham University have won the competition. This does not mean that the team this year have been sitting on their laurels; intensive training and many university level competitions have been keeping the swim team on a tip top condition.
The swim teams have been going from strength to strength, with the university team this year being on top form in national competitions as a team and with swimmers who have been at the Olympics and the Commonwealth games. The team has also ascended
in the ranks of the BUCS events, both in short course and long course where Nottingham came 5th overall. With Varsity being the last big event in the swimming schedule, Uni are approaching this competition relaxed but ready to take on the challenge and to gain a win in what has so far been a disappointing start to the 2011 competition for the teams in gold.
Before Men’s Varsity we were entertained with Women’s Hockey Varsity 2010! A thrilling encounter between two tightly matched teams on paper, under the overcast skies of Beeston Hockey club led to fireworks from the start!
One Hundred & Twenty-four days since the start, 13 events, approximately 18 hours of competition and it comes down to this: Varsity 20/20 Cricket on Clifton Campus for the Varsity series decider! With the current score standing at 7-6 in Trent’s favour, Uni must win to tie the series BUT a tie is enough for Uni to retain the Varsity trophy! After a tough season which has seen them relegated this is Uni’s chance to set the records straight!
Monday March 22nd. Meadow Lane. Trent women have just beaten Uni 3-1. The 2010 C.R.Y. Nottingham Varsity Series now stands at 6-4 to Trent. The crowd is building. The chants are being sung, and the two teams are warming up for the start of the men’s football. An electric atmosphere and a terrific scenario must have had both sets of players buzzing before kick-off, I know I was feeling the tension all the way up in the stands in what was a vitally important game for both teams.
