RUGBY LEAGUE: Baker targets fifth victory
OXFORD University captain Jack Baker has history on his mind as he prepares to lead the Dark Blues in the Pcubed Rugby League Varsity Match.
Baker’s men take on Cambridge University in the 34th match at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in London on Thursday, March 6 (3).
“We come into this year’s Varsity Match after a string of four solid performances that have seen us tie the competition overall,” he said.
“We’re now determined to take the lead and equal Cambridge’s five-win series in the late 1990s and take another victory in 2015 to simply dominate the Light Blues.”
Baker and his Cambridge counterpart James Tennison have agreed to shave their eyebrows should their team lose.
