If Oxford can score again soon, that may be enough for victory
Superb start to the half from the Dark Blues
Hudson converts for 20-10
Great sniping try from Oxford's Sam Egerton

Here we go
After a minute's silence in memory of Nelson Mandela and the national anthem, it's time for kick off
Here come the teams.
The conditions appear ideal, so let's hope for plenty of running rugby.
Kick off is now less than ten minutes away, but the crowd is still pretty sparse
Oxford have 13 returning Blues to Cambridge's six, so will that pay dividends? Cambridge have won seven of their 12 warm-up games, with Oxford claiming five victories from 11.

Cambridge have won the under 21 match 30-19. They also won the second-team match last week, so could that be a good omen for the Light Blues?
Oxford are seeking a fourth successive victory for the first time since 1951. Cambridge have achieved that feat four times in the intervening period, including five staright wins on two occasions.
Kick-off is just over an hour away at Twickenham as the under 21 warm-up match reaches its climax.
