The Men’s Blues play their fourth home match of the term when they entertain the Royal Navy at Iffley Road on Friday 26th October, kick off 7.15pm and they will look to maintain their ‘home form’ and make it a fourth win in a row. Captain Dom Waldouck is unavailable due to his attendance at a close friends wedding, but his place in the centres is taken by last year’s Captain Conor Kearns. In the pack, two of last years Blues return in Ollie Adams and Charlie Pozniak and Ben Ransom returns to the starting XV at full-back. On the bench 2016 Blue Joe Morris makes his seasonable debut for the Blues alongside lock Jack Heeney, flanker Euan Friend and 18 year old fly-half Louis Jackson who all get their first experience of Blues rugby after performing well for the Greyhounds.
The Jackdaw Lane gate and Pavilion bar will be open from 6.00pm and the Iffley Road gate at 6.30pm. Entry is £5 for adults, £3 for concessions. Please note parking in the ground is strictly for permit holders only, please visit the Contact Us section of the website for alternative places to park.
