Varsity champions!

Varsity rugby

The University of Liverpool has won this year’s Sport Varsity after clocking up a final score of 60 points against Liverpool John Moores’ (LJMU) 48 points.

The city’s two principal universities went head to head in 14 different sports on Wednesday with the day predominantly taking place at Wyncote, the University of Liverpool’s outdoor sport facility.

Over 1,000 spectators gathered at the sports ground to watch Liverpool’s Football and Hockey teams triumph over their rivals at LJMU.

However, with two losses in the Rugby League and Lacrosse it was down to the Men’s Rugby Union headline fixture to help decide the outcome of this year’s tournament.

With Liverpool trailing 0-12 after the first half it was looking like the Men wouldn’t be able to match the result of the Women’s team who won 48-0. But the game proved to be a tale of two halves with the team striking immediately in the second half with a try before a succession of penalties led to a 18-12 finish.

The volleyball, handball and badminton events took place at Liverpool John Moores’ IM Marsh facilities, while the swimming, netball and basketball took place in the University of Liverpool’s Sports and Fitness Centre, and student golfers took to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

The University of Liverpool’s Athletic Union President, Matt Ward, said: “All students involved showed fantastic sportsmanship. 2014 has set the precedent for the years to come, so look out for Liverpool Varsity 2015 which promises to be even bigger and better.”
