Old Salopian, John Carter leads Oxford to victory in Varsity Match

Friday 7 December 2012

John Henry Carter (Rt 94 99) led Oxford University to victory against Cambridge for the second successive year, with the Dark Blues winning by 26pts to 19, in a close, enthralling encounter at Twickenham on 6 December.  Although Cambridge dominated the first half and had a 19pts to 6 lead early in the second, Oxford rallied after a stunning try by Sam Egerton and went on to win the 131st Varsity Match. 

Although Carter had to leave the pitch with a knee injury, he was able to celebrate another famous victory with his team mates at the end of the game (see photo, right).
