Oar clash hands Oxford Boat Race win

Oxford power to their fifth Boat Race victory in seven years against University rivals Cambridge, after an early clash of oars on the River Thames.

The Dark Blues, heavy favourites going into the 160th running of the race, pulled into an unassailable lead following the collision five minutes in.

The clash saw Cambridge's Luke Juckett briefly fall from his number two seat and Oxford took advantage to win by 11 lengths.
