#RosesAreWhite

The ancient rivalry between York and Lancaster comes to a head at the largest inter-university sporting competition in Europe.

This year we're back on home soil to face Lancaster, fighting to regain the Carter James Trophy.

We'll be competing in over 50 disciplines, from archery to octopush. As well as rugby, cricket and football, we'll be fencing, climbing, dancing and shooting for the win.

Roses is brought to you by YUSU (York University Students' Union).
