On Saturday 24th March an Oxbridge XV took on the touring Mitsubishi at London Irish’s training ground at Sunbury-on-Thames, the first time a senior Oxbridge XV has played since they toured to Yokahama in 2009. An exciting match saw the Oxbridge team secure a narrow 26 points to 24 victory, before both teams adjourned to the bar to watch the 2018 Boat Raecs, the lighter shade of Blue enjoying the viewing more than the dark! Oxbridge scored four tries from Archie Russell, Chris Bell and Dan Moor (2), with Captain Conor Kearns converting three.
OURFC and CURUFC would like to thank former Oxford Blues Team Secretary and now CEO of Rhino Rugby, Reg Clark for his instrumental involvement in arranging the fixture.
