Brown University: 28    Harvard University: 8

Warm cloudy day played on a good grass pitch. This game was played with passion and at times too much passion. Both teams started the game making a number of infringements at the ruck but improved in this area in the first half. However, the end of the first half was marred by two yellow cards for dangerous tackles - one by each team. The second half became more and more messy as time went on with both teams making mistakes and a further yellow card to Brown for punching. Brown scored again and never looked in trouble for much of the second half while Harvard became increasingly desperate, often getting themselves isolated at the tackle. Harvard also need to learn the law around not engaging at a lineout maul.

Referee: Nick Eldred
