NoteIn the sixteen year history of the Colours Match, the event was watched by the smallest crowd ever in blustery conditions. However, the Match saw the reappearance of the Delaney-sculpted Colours Match Trophy. Trinity's men came to the Colours match with confidence having finished a mere six points behind Queen's University Belfast at the Intervarsities in Limerick. Despite a disqualification in the 200m, Trinity held their own in the eight track disciplines by 44pts to 43pts, each team scoring maximum points in two events. In previous years the field events had been Trinity's Achilles heel, but with coaching from Phil Conway DUHAC took the seven disciplines by 45pts to UCD's 31pts, scoring maximum points in three events versus one event by UCD. Trinity capped their win with a meeting's record in the 4 x 100m relay, an event they had won at the Intervarsities in Limerick. It was Dublin University's largest margin of victory in the series. There was to have been an invitation 3000m steeplechase as an interlude in the programme, but no athletes showed up. There was compensation for UCD in the Women's match with a runaway success over Trinity. UCD won all eleven events, gaining maximum points in five of them. Star of the evening's athletics was Maeve McCormack of UCD who won the 100m, 200, 400m and 800m, setting meeting's records in three, placed 2nd in the high jump and anchored the winning relay quartet. Gerry Finnegan of UCD clipped some six seconds off the previous record for the 5000m. While both the men's and women's 100m were won in fast times, neither was confirmed as a meeting's record because of the windy conditions.
