OXFORD RL have completed a second back-row forward signing with the capture of Sam Blaney from Gloucestershire All Golds.

England Students international Blaney moves to the Kingstone Press Championship One club in the same week that Ireland A cap Graham O’Keefe joined from Limerick Treaty Titans.

Former Hull FC, York City Knights and Sheffield Eagles player Blaney said: “I am excited to be joining the club.

“It seems like it has a good ethos and is moving forward.”

O’Keefe played in this year’s amateur four nations campaign and also represented Ireland at the student Rugby League World Cup where his hat-trick of tries helped them finish seventh.
