RUGBY 15's: She hasn't reached international level (yet), but for student Lara Gibson, her next game will be a momentous one. She has been named in the Cambridge University Women's team to play against Oxford in the Women's Varsity match at Twickenham (the first time the game will take place at the home of England rugby) on 10 December 2015, starting on the wing at No.14:

She is possibly/probably the first player of Pacific island descent, and definitely the first of Rotuman descent to play in this fixture.
