16:10 – IT’S OFFICIAL!!!!!!!!!!! YOU’RE WINNERS OF VARSITY 2016 ARE TEAM SOUTHAMPTON!!!!!!!
15:21 – Two victories for Team Southampton in archery. Without knowing the overall score I can’t be certain, but it must nearly be game over for Varsity 2016
15:18 – But to make things a little bit more entertaining, three streakers have just stopped the Men’s Rugby game. Nobody wants to go near them really, giving them free roam of the pitch.
15:17 – The score document all media groups were using has been taken down, meaning we have far less knowledge of the full score than we have had all day

12:47 – 69 points left for a Team Southampton win. Giggity
12:43 – Men’s lacrosse has ended 4-2 and guess who won. That’s right. Portsmou…..no it was Southampton of course
12:35 – It’s just a matter of time now. Southampton just need 73 points to win. Portsmouth need 153 to complete the comeback. Somehow I think Team Soton have got Varsity 2016 won
12:23 – We’ve had more people coming in here asking where the toilet is than Portsmouth have points
12:20 – Does this count as throwing the towel in?!?!
