Boasting an impressive record in both the South of England (SEMLA) and BUCS leagues to date, Cambridge’s men’s team is aiming for a double promotion this season. After having lost the Varsity match against Oxford for three consecutive years, one might think that the odds are against us. However, the Cambridge squad has been improving greatly, and has managed to give Oxford a closer and closer game every time. Cambridge already met Oxford once this season in the SEMLA league, and just like last year’s Varsity, gave away a very close game in the final quarter. Their most important goal of the match should therefore be to keep the intensity high throughout the 80 minutes. Rumours about extra fitness sessions dedicated to this end have been going around, and it will be very exciting to see whether their sprints in the snow will pay off in the end.
