Monday night at the Vincent’s Club saw the traditional team announcements for the various OURFC Varsity teams ;this year for the first time ever it included the Women’s Blues squad who play their Varsity Match at Twickenham as the curtain raiser to the Varsity at 11.30am. Unfortunately the Whippets will not have a Varsity Match this year as Cambridge are not running men’s 3rd XV so will entertain a Bristol University side as a curtain raiser to the Greyhounds v LX Club at Iffley Road on Wednesday 2nd December.

Centre Henry Lamont, winning his fourth Blue, will lead the Blues out at Twickenham in the absence of OURFC Captain George Messum and he will be joined as a four time Blue by fellow centre Matt Janney and wing Henry Hughes, whilst prop Lewis Anderson sets a new Varsity record by gaining his sixth Blue.
