On Wednesday evening at Iffley Road, a third OURFC team reached a Cup Final when the Women’s put on a tremendous display to defeat visitors Leeds Beckett in the semi-final of the BUCS Vase competition and set up a date with Newcastle University in the final on BUCS Big Wednesday in Bath, on the 22nd March, KO time TBC.

A storming first half display by full-back Sophie Trott, in a repeat of her Player of the Match Varsity performance, saw the home side 15 points to nil ahead – Trott notching a brace of tries with fly-half and Captain Catherine Wilcock adding a penalty and conversion. The second 40 minutes saw the visitors up their game and they crossed the Oxford line for a deserved try juts the once, whilst the Blues added two more of their own, from scrum-half Carly Bliss and centre Heli Copley, Wilcock adding both conversions to make the final score 29 points to 5 in favour of Oxford.
