Supporting the Light Blues rugby
19th September 2017
Cantab Asset Management is once again delighted to be supporting the Cambridge University Rugby Union Football Club in 2017-18 by sponsoring the 70th Steele-Bodger XV match.
The match between Cambridge University RUFC and the Steele-Bodger XV was inaugurated in 1948 by Michael Roland “Micky” Steele-Bodger CBE, a graduate of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and former rugby Varsity player who went on to play for Harlequins, England and the Barbarians. He is currently the President of the Barbarian Football Club and President of the East India Club, London. Steele-Bodger, since 1948, has been responsible for assembling a team from players at sides across the country to play against Cambridge University RUFC as a warm-up to the Varsity Match. 2016 was a high-scoring encounter with Cambridge University RUFC winning 52-26.
The Light Blues have just returned from a pre-season training in South Africa. We wish them every success in the season ahead. Their first match starts tomorrow at Grange Road against Loughborough University.
