Rohan Wolsey, Sanket Shrestha, Connor Macleod and I competed on behalf of Bath Spa University at VARSITY 2017 against Bristol Uni, Bath Uni and UWE. Connor and I were the top scorers of our team (round 1) so were split into two different teams for round 2, in which I got the highest mark for any poem of the night. We then both won our rounds ending up with a Bath Spa v Bath Spa final, in which Connor Macleod beat me by a point overall to become the winner. Making Bath Spa the winning team also.

I competed alongside George Cook, Rohan Wolsey and Rhys Tucker for Bath Spa University. We got through to the semi finals with many high accolades and were told we were strong competition and that other Universities had been ‘warned about us’. Laurie Bolger asked to be my friend. We made lots of friends, in particular Team Dublin (now Cracked Spine Collective).
