On Wednesday afternoon OURFC will once again make history when the Women’s Blues face a Major Stanley’s XV for the first time, kick-off at Iffley Road 11.30am. This fixture will be a welcome distraction from BUCS league action when they face the invitational side which for this first encounter will be an all-OURFC alumni squad put together by former OUWRFC President Ellaine Gelman. The gates will open at 11am, with entry ranging from £3 to £10.
