It’s Varsity term, what’s the atmosphere like in the team?

We’re confident. With the second team unbeaten and the first team top of the league, it’s all about confidence at the moment.

Is the team confident they can reverse last year’s 3-1 loss in Oxford?

There’s a lot of pressure on having not won for a few years, but it’s the strongest squad we’ve had.

And in that squad there’s a few characters, right?

Yeah, when James Day’s not perking up with his big shnoz, Kalil’s around for a sing-song. In Gibraltar his version of ‘I need a dollar’ was a highlight.

Apart from the Aloe Blacc then, what gets the team going before a big game?

‘Since U Been Gone’ by Kelly Clarkson is a personal favourite.

If it’s a winning Varsity day who’ll be leading the celebrations after the game?

Danny K’s got some surprisingly good moves. And then Matt Smith will probably get lost and turn up at 7am somewhere in Gibraltar.
