Saturday is another busy day of rugby for OURFC men’s teams with both the Greyhounds and Whippets having home fixtures as they continue towards the end of November and Varsity time. The Whippets start proceedings when they host Henley U20’s at the St John’s College Sports Ground on the Woodstock Road, kick off 12.30pm. Coach Will Thornton will be looking for this young squad to build on their second half performance against the RAF U23’s last Sunday.
The Greyhounds return to Iffley Road for the first time in three weeks for the visit of Barnes 2nd XV, historically one of their toughest opponents of the term, KO 3.00pm. Coach Johnny Fennell has a strong squad on paper, but will be looking for them to deliver on the pitch.
