KEW Occasionals triumphed in the Oku Memorial Trophy at Iffley Road.

Victories over London Japanese (35-12) and a combined Vincent’s Club/Hertford College side (31-7) earned them the trophy.

Contested in memory of Katsuhiko Oku, the first Japanese player to appear for Oxford University, this was the third time the annual event has taken place at Iffley Road.

Oku, who studied at Hertford College from 1981-3, later became a Japanese ambassador and was killed on a diplomatic mission to Iraq in 2003.
