Meet KCL’s London Varsity rugby boys

They really don’t like UCL


The London Varsity Series 2016 is well under way, with some historic and significant results already making for some memorable highlights for the biggest rivalry in the capital. With the scores currently just in favour of the men and women in red, the rugby finale at Allianz Park has the potential to be the ultimate decider. So who could be the one  to clinch the title with a last minute try or seemingly impossible conversion? It’s time to meet men’s rugby, and what they can bring to the clash with the enemy.
