The Blues starting XV to face the Army at Iffley Road shows just two changes from the team who defeated the RAF at Iffley Road last Wednesday. In the forwards, second row Will Rowlands (Pembroke) returns following a start for London Wasps against London Irish at the weekend, allowing Fraser Heathcote (St Edmund Hall) to move back to No 8 while Julien Morlet (Green Templeton) slips down to the bench. In the backs Sam Dumigan (Pembroke) replaces Sam Arras (Worcester) on the wing, after a strong showing on debut when coming off the bench last week. Newly elected Captain Jacob Taylor (Keble) leads the side for the first time, in what will be a tough encounter as the Blues look to repeat their success at Aldershot last year and retain the Mike Campbell-Lamerton Trophy, played for annually between the two sides.
