On Friday night at a very pleasant Iffley Road for the time of year, the Men’s Blues maintained their winning run on home soil with a 31 points to nil victory over the Army. Star of the show was wing Tom Stileman who notched his second hat-trick in two weeks with some superb finishing skills in a man of the match performance and took his personal try tally to 10 for the season. Despite Tom grabbing the tries, it was a solid team effort and in particular captain Ed David and coach James Wade would be pleased with the defensive effort to keep the Army scoreless.
Next Friday the squad travel to Clifton RFC to face a Bristol side who will look to halt the Blues winning streak.
