Monday 17th October sees the Men’s Blues play host to the visit of the second Premiership outfit of the season when Northampton make the short visit down the A43 to Iffley Road, for a 7.15pm kick-off. Despite the scoreline, Captain Fergus Taylor and Coach James Wade were encouraged by the performance against Bristol last Monday, particularly the defensive effort and the physicality the squad showed in the face of a big powerful pack. This Monday will require more of the same, as Northampton bring a strong side with a mix of experience and youthful potential and they will prove a great test for the Blues.
Another large crowd is expected at Iffley Road so please take note of the important information below, to ensure your visit to support the Blues is an enjoyable one.
The Jackdaw Lane gate and Pavilion bar will be open from 6.15pm and the Iffley Road gate at 6.30pm. Entry is £5 for adults and £3 for concessions (over 60’s, under 18’s & students). Please note the normal parking restrictions apply, with parking in the ground strictly for permit holders only, please visit the Contact Us section of the website for alternative places to park.
