TOM Stileman continued his impressive try-scoring form as Oxford University beat Northumbria University 40-7 at Iffley Road last night.

The winger ran in a hat-trick, taking his try-count to nine in his last three appearances, as the Dark Blues recorded their seventh victory in eight games this season.

Rob Quinlan and Roberto Talotti also crossed for the students, with captain Conor Kearns kicking two penalties and a conversion.

Oxford will continue their preparations for next month's Varsity Match when they take on a Major Stanley's XV on Wednesday, November 15.
