The weekend saw a win and a loss for the Dogs squads.
On Saturday in the rain, the Whippets secured a 17 points to 12 win over Bath University Freshers scoring a try with the last play of the game to give them a morale boost prior to the ‘Oxford Derby’ against Brookes on Wednesday 29th November.
In contrasting conditions on Sunday, clear blue skies, the Greyhounds had a repeat of last year’s Oxfordshire County Cup final when they hosted Banbury, but once again they came off second best to the local club side, who had a just a little bit to much experience and rugby ‘nous’ for a young Hounds team. However, the experience will be invaluable to take into their Varsity Match against the Cambridge LX Club at Iffley Road on Wednesday 29th November.
