Perse rugby and hockey teams enjoy friendly rivalry with Argentine visitors
7 Feb 2020
Perse teams had a ball as they took to the sports pitch for friendly matches with sides from a visiting Argentine school.
Barker College met The Perse in hard-fought 1st XV and U16 rugby matches and an entertaining 1st XI girls’ hockey encounter after stopping off in Cambridge during their tour of the country.
It was the latest connection in the relationship between the two schools – Perse hockey and netball teams had previously visited the Buenos Aires school during a tour to Argentina, while Barker rugby and hockey teams came to Cambridge to play their Perse counterparts in 2018.
