To round off a busy day of OURFC rugby, on Wednesday night the Men’s Blues will host the Crawshays Welsh RFC – an invitational team pulled from Welsh qualified players, kick-off 7.15pm at Iffley Road. Last year the Blues managed to secure a hard earned 12 points to 7 victory and they will look to repeat that win and also build on last week’s 33 points 10 success over Bristol University.
In the continued absence of 2020 Captain George Messum, the team will be once again lead by Charlie Pozniak, and the squad shows a mix of experience and youth with ten Blues included in the starting XV and a further two on the bench, whilst back row forward Raef Murphy will make his Blues debut from the bench, meaning a total of three players from St Benet’s Hall in the squad – has this happened before?
The Jackdaw Lane gate and Pavilion bar will be open from 6.00pm and the Iffley Road gate at 6.30pm. Entry is £5 for adults, £3 for concessions. Please note parking in the ground is strictly for permit holders only, please visit the Contact Us section of the website for alternative places to park.
