Rugby League Match Preview

5th March 2011

Saturday 5th of March sees the fourth event in ‘The 2011 PASIC Varsity Series’ take place. Currently trailing 2-1 in the series, Uni will be looking to level prior to the double header of Basketball and Netball on March 11th, or risk Trent extending their lead.

With one Varsity match win a piece for our respective Rugby League sides, this game is sure to be a close one. Last year Uni edged a thrilling encounter, ending up 18-16 winners and avenging their 18-10 defeat from the previous year.

Uni managed to get the better of Trent last year, emerging 18-16 winners

A fantastic season, sees Uni occupy second in the Southern Premier BUCS division, only behind runaway leaders Exeter, Trent, however, have similarly been in fine form, topping the BUCS midlands league, though they have been defeated twice by Uni’s second team.

Sure to be another highly charged and physical match, the well organised and tight defence Trent displayed last year will be challenged by Uni’s power and strength on the wing. Uni will be hoping that their team’s large contingent of 3rd years will be able to call upon their experience to aid them in what promises to be a very exciting affair on paper.For many their last chance at a Varsity victory,let’s hope it can live up to expectations.
