Radley welcomed Oxford University Rugby Football Club (OURFC) to the school on Monday 5th December as they prepare for the 135th Varsity Match with Cambridge on the 8th December.
Cambridge currently lead the overall standings 61-59 but Oxford, coached by Director of Sport James Gaunt, will be looking to build upon their six year unbeaten run in the fixture. OURFC Captain Fergus Taylor, who has been coaching rugby at the school this term said, “the day has provided us with the opportunity to train away from the hype of the Varsity match build up. The facilities and in particular the Bigside pitch are quite simply outstanding. Running against the Bigside squad has allowed us to practice both our attacking and defensive shape so a huge thank you must go to all those involved in organising this day for us. We look forward to building our relationship with Radley and want them to know they are very welcome at our home, Iffley Rd, at any time”.
Let’s hope that some of the Bigside squad may be donning the Dark Blue Oxford Jersey in future Varsity match clashes. Good luck Oxford!
