On Friday night in place of the Royal Navy who unfortunately had to withdraw from the fixture, the Men’s Blues will take on the OU Greyhounds at Iffley Road, kick-off 7.15pm.
Captain Ed David and Coach James Wade can use this as an opportunity to cast their eye over some 40 players in a meaningful 80 minuet full-on contest – a throwback to the 60’s and 70’s when this match was a regular on the OURFC fixture card! However, with a number of players having played a lot of rugby throughout September, it is also an opportunity to rest a few who are carrying niggles ahead of the bigger challenges to come in October and November. Even with a number rested, there are thirteen Blues in the two squads.
Entry s free and the Pavilion Bar will be open.
