On Wednesday afternoon the Women’s Blues will travel east for the first of three encounters with their oldest rivals, Cambridge. This first meeting is a BUCS Premier South fixture and both sides will not only be looking for league points but to also gain a psychological ‘advantage’ ahead of the Varsity Match on the 12th December at Twickenham.
