That the 1st XV win over last years Premiers was the 16th home win in a row, which started on the 22.7.2000 on No.1 Oval. The last time we kept Gordon to single points was 10.5.2014 when we won 46-7 at Chatswood Oval. Also Saturdays win was our 50th home win against the Highlanders.
Sydney’s glorious winter weather turned full circle last Saturday. In conditions resembling Captain Robert Scott’s trek to the Antarctic, wind, rain, bitterly cold conditions and a heavy ground failed to stifle the Students unbeaten run. Sydney University defeated 2020 Premiers, Gordon in a tradesman like 26-5 victory before a bumper crowd.
