On Saturday lunchtime the Whippets hosted Cardiff Met Freshers in the University Parks in their final game before the ‘Oxford Derby’ vs Brookes, and despite a spirited performance were out-gunned by a well organised Cardiff side by 40 points to 7.
The at 2pm at Iffley Road, the Greyhounds welcomed traditional opponents the Welsh Academicals in what is normally a high scoring entertaining game enjoyed by a large crowd. The conditions on Saturday meant it was difficult to play the wise expansive game both teams would have liked to do, with mistakes aplenty, however there were four tries, three for Oxford and one for the Accies for the crowd to appreciate.
The two ‘Dogs’ teams finish the term at Iffley Road on Wednesday 4th December with the Greyhounds welcoming the LX Club in the 2nd XV Varsity Mach at 2pm, which will be followed the Whippets vs Oxford Brookes at 5pm.
