With the Iffley Road pitch frozen after the heavy overnight frost, Wednesday afternoon’s BUCS league fixture for the Women’s Blues against Hartpury was switched to the AGP at Horspath Road, thus preventing a second postponement of this match. The home side started strongly and were 5 nil ahead with a try from wing Zoe Nunn, a lead they held on to until just before half time when the visitors scored to tries to lead at the interval. The second half saw the Gloucestershire side exert continued pressure that lead to points and a final somewhat flattering scoreline of 41 points to 5 in their favour. No 8 Hannah Cooper was the Oxford was the deserved winner of the Player of the Match award.
The Women’s Blues next BUCS fixture is next Wednesday when they travel west down the M4 to take on Bristol University.
