|Lincoln retains rugby trophy|
For the third year in a row Lincoln University 1st XV beat Canterbury University 1st XV in their annual clash for the Hart O’Reilly Trophy as part of the Christchurch Metropolitan Competition, Division 1.
At 19 -13 to Lincoln, the score line was closer than last year’s 50 -22, but it was good enough to keep the trophy in Lincoln’s hands.
The match was played on Lincoln University’s No. 1 ground and was followed by a function in Mrs O’s, attended by a number of alumni who had turned out to support the Lincoln University team.
