One of OURFC’s most famous former players, Ronald Poulton-Palmer has been honoured alongside his father Sir Edward Bagnall Palmer with a Blue Plaque outside the family home on the Banbury Road in Oxford. Poulton-Palmer won three Blues for Oxford, captaining the side in 1911, but he is perhaps best remembered for the five tries he scored in the 1909 Varsity Match, a record that still stands today. He also won seventeen caps for England, before tragically losing his life in 1915 when he was killed by sniper fire in Ploegsteert Wood during WW1.
