Eight people were arrested at Varsity

Behaviour was described as “disappointing”

Eight students were arrested at Welsh Varsity on Wednesday.

Fixtures were played all over Cardiff on the day, with students from both universities moving around the city.

Complaints were made about the behaviour of some of the students as the police have said that alcohol played a major role in the actions of a minority.

It was described as “disappointing” and “left a lot to be desired”, said the Chief Inspector of the South Wales Police.

“Throughout the day and the evening, eight students were arrested but for relatively minor offences, which is a small number considering that many thousands enjoyed everything the city and the event had to offer,” said Chief Inspector Joe Jones.

“I would like to thank the majority of students who did enjoy themselves responsibly throughout the day and night.”

Cardiff retained the Varsity shield on Wednesday, with the final game of the day being won by Cardiff Men’s Rugby, scoring 35-15.
