At the game

Dixon Phillips were in amongst the scrum of Cambridge professionals who touched down at the 68th annual Steele-Bodger rugby match at Cambridge University's rugby ground this week.

Michelle Oliver, Paul Dixon, Oliver Phillips and Matt Dempsey lined up at a packed Grange Road for the always well-supported Cambridge event.

The Light Blues fared better than the England team had on their own turf in the recent Rugby World Cup by banking a 36-33 victory over the select Steele-Bodger's XV in what is the traditional final dress rehearsal ahead of next month's Varsity Match against the old enemy, Oxford University, at Twickenham.

It is also one of the main professional networking events of the year, so we made a try at converting opportunities, throwing ourselves into the line, binding with clients and contacts and tackling the opposition. Three quarters went home after extra time but one of us played on with another pack, propping up the bar into the night and conceding a penalty in the morning...
