Oxford University 17 Boroughmuir 21

Oxford University became the first of the guest sides to crash out of the tournament, as two tries from Lindsay Graham helped Boroughmuir to victory. Two tries from Luke Sherriff gave Oxford a 10-7 half-time lead over Boroughmuir, whose points came from a try by Rory Couper, converted by Calvin Howarth.

Boroughmuir regained the lead with a second converted try of the tie. Graham drove over, and Howarth added the two points.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Jamie Weston broke from his own 22 to touch down between the posts, and Phil Graham converted. Boroughmuir snatched back the lead, as Graham touched down again, and Howarth added the conversion.
