The impressive First VIII of 1988’s Triple success has become the first moment to reach the quarter-final stages of HSC’s Hampton’s Greatest Sporting Moments competition.
In a poll on Twitter, the Triple proved extremely successful, winning 82% of the vote. Its closest rival was the First XV’s victory at the St. Joseph’s National Festival, in 2015.
The Triple will now progress to the quarter-final next month: its opponent will be decided over the coming weeks.
The Hampton’s Greatest Sporting Moments series continues on Monday with Group Two.
