Oxford beat Cambridge in varsity rugby match

7:51 pm on 14 December 2008

The former All Black hooker Anton Oliver has helped Oxford to a 33-29 victory over Cambridge in the annual varsity rugby match at Twickenham.

It is Oxford's first win since 2004 and Oliver's last top-level rugby game.

Centre Tim Catling scored three tries for Oxford, the first hat-trick in the match for 74 years - helping make it the highest-scoring game in its 136-year history.

Another former All Black, Mark Ranby, played for Cambridge.
