On Wednesday afternoon the Women’s Blues return to BUCS League action with the trip west to face Cardiff University KO 1430 at Llanrumney, Mendip Road, Cardiff, CF3 4JN. Cardiff currently sit top of the league with a perfect 7 – 0 record, they beat the Blues 37 – 7 at Iffley Rd back in October so the squad know they will need to face the challenge head-on to secure a win.
Captain Hazel Ellender has been able to call upon 18 of those who took to the field at Twickenham back in December, so the squad can travel with a degree of optimism of a strong Dark Blue performance.
