#Rowing: Trinity’s senior men’s eight gave Ireland a second win at Henley Royal Regatta today. They took on and beat Pembroke College, Oxford in the Temple Cup for college eights. Pembroke were fast off the start, but their steering was badly askew. They lost time to Trinity, who took the lead and held it. They fought off a big push coming into the Enclosures. They won by two thirds of a length.
