Comments from NickGibson3900:

  1. The sentence "The rivalry is a major point of honour between the two universities and followed throughout the United Kingdom and broadcast worldwide." Needs to be changed to be more cohesive. It could be "...followed throughout the United Kingdom and worldwide." or "...broadcast throughout the United Kingdom and worldwide." Also "...the two universities and followed..." needs to be ...the two universities and it is followed..."
    This was discussed on other articles. The point was that it is widely followed in the UK and widely broadcast (but not necessarily followed) across the world. Don't necessarily agree with the need for "and it is", perhaps "and is" at a push, but right now the grammar stands up to scrutiny. The Rambling Man (talk) 07:36, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
  2. ""world championship could be "world rowing championship
    Could do, but it's pretty clear that it's in rowing in my opinion but linked it to the World Rowing Championships.
