Anyone watch the Final tonight? I thought Magdalen, Oxford really deserved to win as their captain was much calmer! The Cambridge captain seemed to get very irritated with himself and his teammates!

Oh well, Cambridge can win the boat race, but Oxford are the more academic ones clearly! :rolleyes:

I watched some of it and couldn't answer many questions! I'd have to say Magdalen deserved to win

He was really funny to watch though. He also couldn't sit still.

I was supporting Cambridge for the simple bitter reason that Magdalen rejected me!

The guy sitting on the Magdalen captain's right (so he was on her left on the screen) knew everything. A touch intimidating.

Well it's no wonder Magdalen won -their bonus questions were just sooo easy!

Their captain really irritated me when she grabbed the trophy and wouldn't give the fellas a look in. Bossy little moo!

mmm & even more fun to watch when they're drunk & attempting it..!

i think the reason i generally dislike the programme is that i'm useless, i don't think i got any! the things i find interesting & remember are just too obscure i suppose..whoops. :rolleyes:

Wow - that's cool!

Do you have to be a second or third year to represent your college/uni? How did you manage to get a place on the reserve?

Let us know when your appearance (if you are selected) is coming up so as we can all tune in and watch you win!
