I heard that too rainbow-good on him!

A couple of interesting points from a Bath p.o.v.:

Cambridge Captain Nick Koster formerly (albeit briefly) of this parish.

Both scrum halves box-kicked better than ours have lately -and their team mates, for the most part, followed up well.

Yes, some pretty impressive performances there from those "inexperienced" young players.
Their basics skills were in good shape.

Agreed johnny

Big names aside, I thought the spoiling and driving of the Cambridge back row in the first half particularly impressive. The determination of Oxford's wings to score, Miller's bursts and the flawless goal kicking of the two fly halves (none of those conversions was easy) lit up the second half. Their tactical kicking was pretty sound too and Oxford worked their overlaps well.

A step up from the past 3/4 years.
