Friendly rugby match recreates historical battle of the sexes
A friendly match between male and female teams recreated a 50-year-old game of rugby to mark the Rugby World Cup final.
Two teams battled it out on Victoria Park at the weekend, but the match held an added significance – it was a recreation of a game played in the same spot in 1964 between a team of girls and a team of boys.
The modern day battle of sexes had slightly different rules, but showed that co-ed sporting participation was still a big part of the University's ethos.
The game kicked off at 11am on Saturday, with 10 players a side playing touch rugby for four 10 minute quarters resulting in a female victory.
After the friendly encounter, both sides visited their local pub to watch the All Blacks beat Australia in a thrilling Rugby World Cup final.
