Following the highly successful ‘Club Development Weekend’ the Blues squad convened for their start of their preseason week on Tuesday at gloriously sunny Iffley Road. Approx. 40 players have been invited to the training camp as Captain Jacob Taylor and Coach James Wade start preparations in earnest for the 2014 Varsity Campaign. Following the week in Oxford an invited group of 30 players will travel to Russia on Tuesday 9th September to play two matches, against Saint Petersburg University and RC Slava in Moscow.
As well as the usual rugby training and strength & conditioning elements, the preseason week has also seen the squad getting their hands dirty by giving the stands and surrounds a spruce up in preparation for the new season – see photo. Proving beyond doubt that OURFC is truly a ‘Player Integrated’ club.
