Magdalen students Princess Ashilokun and Henry Hughes played starring roles in the 2016 Varsity rugby matches for Oxford University against Cambridge held at Twickenham.

Princess, an undergraduate studying English Language and Literature, played centre in the winning Oxford women’s team who beat Cambridge 3-0 in an enthralling match (see main picture and picture below of the winning team).


Henry Hughes (pictured), a graduate student studying Clinical Medicine, also played centre and scored a try for Oxford in the men’s match which Cambridge won 23-18. It was the fifth year running that Henry has won a rugby Blue and Oxford won the four previous matches.
