Hugh’s sink with Peter’s after tame concession

first_imgWHILST Keble’s hard-fought victory over Magdalen secured a third First Division title in succession on Tuesday, issues at the other end of the table were settled in a more underwhelming fashion.With St. Hugh’s due to face Teddy Hall in what was set up to be a relegation decider, the prospect of the Teddies beginning next season in Division Two was crushed as Hugh’s conceded the points, unable to put out a side. Hugh’s will be joined in the second tier by St. Peter’s, who completed a dismal, pointless campaign by going down 34-0 at home to Catz. The visitors were missing several key players, and will be more than happy with a result that sees them claim second place in the table behind Keble. Hoping to make their mark among the elite next year will be second division champions Christ Church and runners-up LMH/Trinity, who secured promotion after seeing off the challenge of Wadham in their final fixture.Making their way down to Division Three are Exter, who finished rock bottom without a single point, and Corpus Christi/Somerville, who were playing top-flight rugby not too long ago. Both Christ Church and LMH will be looking to fare better than Peter’s and Hugh’s, who were both promoted to the top flight last Hilary.New blood will be a vital injection to a league where the gap between the top and bottom sides this term was truly staggering and, at times, frightening.last_img
