Dramatic extra-time victory for the Hall in Rugby Cuppers Final!

The Teddy Hall rugby team celebrating after their victory

Thanks to Ben Tucker (2007, Engineering Science) for the following match report.

The kick-off of the Cuppers final last Saturday signalled St Edmund Hall’s intent right from the get go, as we competed in the air and won our own kick to start at an intense pace. With the first 15 minutes played exclusively in the St Peter’s College half, the Hall were all over the opposition with numerous forays and probing runs inside the 22. A combination of stout Peter’s defence and unforced errors from the Hall, however, meant that we came away empty handed.

Principal travels to San Francisco to meet with Aularians

On a beautiful Spring evening 25 guests joined Principal Keith Gull at Bistro Boudin to catch-up with old friends, make new friends and discuss Teddy Hall today.
