OXFORD University RFC will elect their new captain on Friday, January 24.

Candidates standing to succeed John Carter, who led Oxford to three successive Varsity Match victories, will stake their claim during the traditional hustings at Iffley Road.

Meanwhile, Dark Blues flanker Gus Jones has been named in England’s squad for the Under 20 Six Nations.

Jones, from Oxford, and Leicester Tigers back Henry Purdy, from Milton-under-Wychwood, are both in England’s 32-man party, with the first match away to France on Friday, January 31.
