On Sunday evening at the Vincent’s Club, Abby D’Cruz and Dom Waldouck announced their squads for their respective Varsity Matches to be played at Twickenham on Thursday 6th December.
Abby D’Cruz has named nine returning Blues in her squad as the Women’s Blues look to wrestle the Varsity Trophy back from Cambridge after last year’s loss. Kick-off is at 11.30am in a match that celebrates 30 years of Women’s Varsity Rugby.
Dom Waldouck has been able to name seven returning Blues, in a squad that has enjoyed a successful term. Winger Ed David and prop Abhijeet Oswal were both ruled out of selection because of injury. The Men’s Blues will be looking to stop Cambridge making it three in a row at 3.00pm on the Thursday afternoon.
