Oxford: University Rowing Teams Announced

The Oxford teams for this year's University Boat Race have been announced.

There will be eight rowers to a boat when they take on old rivals Cambridge on the 11th of April

It's the first year both the men and womens teams are competing on the same course along the Thames.

All the action will be televised live - with the races an hour apart. The Newton Women’s Boat Race will begin at 4:50pm, The BNY Mellon Boat Race at 5:50pm.

Both Oxford and Cambridge have weighed in - and Cambridge have come out as the heavier competitors this year.
