Congratulations to two Robinsonians Hetta Friend (Medicine, 2018) and George Cook (MML, 2018) who have been selected for the rugby squads for the Varsity Matches at the Mattioli Woods Welford Road Stadium, the home of Leicester Tigers on Sunday, 4 July. It will be Hetta’s first appearance and George’s second after getting Blue in 2019.

George’s first reaction: “I’m excited to be included in this year’s Varsity Match squad. It’s a great privilege, and I look forward to making an impact if I get on the pitch.” 

Hetta said, “Joining CURUFC and starting the strength and conditioning program during lockdown last year was brilliant as it gave me structure and a new goal to work towards. I was welcomed with open arms and thanks to the support of my teammates and the coaching staff, I have learnt so much and have been able to put everything into rugby this year despite being a complete beginner. I’m absolutely honoured to be representing Cambridge this year for the 34th women’s varsity match and playing alongside such a talented and inspiring group of women. I’m very grateful to Robinson for all the encouragement and support to pursue this dream of mine.

Good luck Hetta and George.
