Teams named for Grand Final blockbuster

30 July; Aaron McNaughton


It all comes down to this, Melbourne and Sydney, two great cities and the two oldest Universities in Australia, set to go head-to-head for the Varsity Challenge Cup Grand Final this Tuesday on University Oval.

The Varsity Challenge is Australia’s premier university sporting conference involving members of the Group of Eight Universities. In keeping with the tradition of the Australian Boat Race, Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Mark Considine issued a challenge to University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor Michael Spence inviting the Sydney team to Melbourne and will be on hand to toss the coin at the start of the match.

Melbourne qualified for the grand final defeating Monash University and the University of Adelaide for the opportunity to take on the University of Sydney. 

Tuesday’s match is sure to be hotly contested with quality student-footballers playing for each team. The two teams faced off on University Oval in April 2017 with Sydney taking the victory, so Melbourne will be out for revenge in trying to claim the first Varsity Challenge Cup trophy.

Leading the Melbourne team is Arts student Connor Lappin, a member of the University Blues William Buck Premier team, who is joined by a number of players from the University Blacks and Blues. Sydney’s team include a number of players from the Sydney University Australian National Football Club including NEAFL listed player Luke Vella and former Sydney Swan Lloyd Perris.
