As the Rugby World Cup kicks off and we enjoy the exciting matches from Japan remember that you can take your students to watch some live, inspirational, amateur rugby, both men’s and women’s, at Twickenham on Thursday 12th December at the Oxford v Cambridge Varsity Match.
Over the years 45 players from Oxford and Cambridge have gone on to represent their countries and this year Nate Brakeley, who wore a Cambridge shirt at the Varsity Match in 2012, will be in Tokyo representing the US. Who knows - maybe one of your students will be inspired by what they see at Twickenham, the home of Rugby, and will go on to be an international player.
As well as 2 top class rugby matches we are offering a number of free sporting and educational activities to make your day at Twickenham a day to remember for everyone.
