As per Julia's request, should the next FaTTBC vs BPBC multisport event be touch rugby?

Whither FaTTFC vs BPFC?
This year's 1st & 3rd vs Black Prince football match was less competitive than in previous years. This may be a consequence of BPBC having gained more recent graduates, leaving 1st & 3rd somewhat disadvantaged. How should the fixture be run in future years to keep it competitive?

Play (e.g.) strokeside vs bowside, again with mixed FaT/BPBC teams  6%

Only run the fixture in years when there is particularly strong interest from FaT  0%

Play the game in Michaelmas term when more 1st years are likely to be involved  41%
Abandon the fixture  0%
