NoteThe 12th Colours Match took place just four days after Trinity's hosting of the Intervarsities at Santry and in College Park, the first time those championships had been held over two days. The TCD women's team were on a 'high' having won the Intervarsities title. The TCD team won all of their Colours events against UCD, taking maximum points in five out of the eight individual disciplines. The Trinity Patricia's were to the fore, with a double for Moran in the 100m and 200m and a treble of wins for Wilson in the 400m, Long Jump and Javelin. The TCD men could not emulate the performance of their female counterparts. Trinity did win five of the eight track disciplines and matched UCD in score, 44 pts each. There were fine double wins for John Ross for UCD in the 100m and 200m, John Dillon of Trinity in the 400m and 400m hurdles and Colin Cusick of Trinity in the 800m and 1500m. Robert Walker, who had won the 'varsity 10,000m, took the metric 3 miles to repeat his 1971 distance event achievement. His time was a meeting record for the 5,000m and "very much superior to the old record" set by Mick Hoey (UCD) in College Park for 3 miles (4,828m) of 14:29.80. However, Trinity could not match UCD in the field events (UCD 47pts v TCD 30pts), with UCD winning in six of the seven events, three with maximum points. Trinity only won the Discus with maximum points. Brendan Curtin, a first year engineering student, showed the athletic talent and future force he would be for UCD in Colours and Intervarsities in winning the Triple Jump in a meeting record which had stood from 1965 to Sean O'Dwyer (UCD). He had three jumps over 46ft (14.02m), the record coming in his 5th trial. UCD's relay win sealed their victory by 20pts.
