The Dream Varsity Match


As the 2016 Varsity match approaches, I have selected an Oxford and Cambridge team to play in the “Dream varsity match.

Everyone one selected is an international player who took part in a Varsity match during their playing career

Some great names here, and an awful lot of great names have also been omitted 

The referee for this match, the one and only Clive Norling, who graced the varsity match on more than one occasion.
