Sponsored by Mulberry Risk

To commemorate the first Women’s Varsity Match in 1988,  we held the inaugural 88s Match here at Grange Road on Tuesday 23rd November 2021. This event celebrate the first women’s rugby Varsity Match in 1988 and all the women who have played rugby for Cambridge since then.

The evening consisted of the ‘Women in Rugby Networking Event’, which featured a talk by Tammy Samuel. There was also an alumni gathering and our women’s 1st XV facing Oxford for the first time in the season.

The match marked the start of a week of celebratory events for the 150th Anniversary season and set the tone for what was to be a fantastic week. The Cambridge side played fluent and free-flowing rugby and triumphed against the Oxford side 15-0.

CURUFC would like to thank Mulberry Risk for sponsoring the match and to Matt Impey and Chris Fell for the stunning gallery of photographs.
