Meet the guys playing in this Friday’s varsity match

They’re really fit


It’s that time of year again. Expect streakers, chanting and fit boys in little shorts. Who doesn’t love a bit of varsity? This Friday, UoM’s first rugby team are taking on MMU in an epic Manchester clash. It’s looking like a match not to be missed.

And with an after party at the SU headlined by Shy FX costing only a fiver, this weekend is shaping up to be a messy night of AU fun.

Kick off is at 5.30pm for the women’s match and 7.45pm for the men’s at the AJ Bell Stadium. There will be buses shuttling people from the Armitage Centre’s bottom car park from 4.45pm to 6.45pm. Bring £3 cash to be let on.

Tickets are on sale tomorrow and Friday from Owens Park and the Students’ Union and cost £10.

We went down to watch the threes play today and caught up with the men’s first team so you can get to know the lads you’ll be cheering for on Friday.
