Come down tonight to Durham City to see the heavyweights of College rugby do battle

Tonight (Wednesday) sees the 5th annual Hill vs. Bailey charity match, taking place at Durham City. The women will kick off at 6pm, while the boys will headline proceedings at 7:45pm.

This year promises to be the most competitive so far after the Hill won for the first time ever last year, a feat they are hoping to repeat while the Bailey boys will be confident of reasserting their dominance once again.

With the weather brightening up and forecasts for some gentle early evening sun and tropical temperatures of 10°c, there’s no excuse not to put the books down and get some fresh air while watching what should be a fantastic game of exhibition rugby.

The £2 entry fee will go towards some extremely worthwhile charities, including Walk Once More, Air Ambulance and the RFU Injured Players Foundation.

So get down and support those representing your college (unless you’re in Chads, in which case there aren’t any), and feel free to BYO for an extra quid. See you there!
