Roses is the annual varisty held between Lancaster and York. The rivalry between both Universities is incredibly competitive and emotions are always high over the tournament weekend. In 2018, the event was held in Lancaster. On Friday, the first day, Lancaster pulled away with a 48 point lead. As per, we were out and about around the University campus shooting as many sports as possible – from American Football to Clay Pigeon Shooting and everything in between. Harry stayed up until 6:30am this morning cutting this video together.
The following day, on Saturday, Lancaster secured victory of the entire tournament with a whole day of sports still left to play on Sunday. A huge variety of events were played, many of which we didn’t have an opportunity to attend because of time clashes.
On the final day, Sunday, the Men’s 1st Rugby Union team closed the tournament with a fantastic performance – breaking York Rugby Union’s 10 year undefeated run at Roses. While there were a number of events being played, we were only able to see a small number of them and only featured Rugby in this video.
While videoing the events over the weekend, we were able to capture this fantastic moment in the Men’s 1st Rugby League game in which a York player headbutted his own teammate in the groin. The video was later picked up by SportsBible and gained 500K+ views in less than 2 days.
