Another loss for DMU in rugby Varsity

By James Cannell

Both the men’s and women’s rugby first teams played this year’s Varsity game on Wednesday in Leicester but saw DMU lose in dramatic fashion.

Far from scoring: DMU’s women’s team desperately trying to push for a try

Both teams played the full 80 minutes, but DMU failed to score a single try in either match, with the women losing 49-0 and the men 53-3.

The University of Leicester once again held on to the women’s title for the 14th year running while the DMU men’s team haven’t won since 2012.

This weekend will see the two universities go up against each other again in cycling, netball and basketball as well the rugby second and third teams. The timetable for all fixtures is available at: https://www.dmu.ac.uk/about-dmu/news/varsity/fixtures.aspx.
