Congratulations to Durham, who consisted of Colin Telfer (Theology), Nick Ledger (Engineering), John Stewart (Geomorphology), and Nick Allan (Geography), who became not only the first team to appear 6 times on a series, but also the first series champions to have actually lost a game in the process!
