RUGBY UNION: Dark Blues set for Croatia clash

7:30am Thursday 3rd April 2014

OXFORD University will look to end their season on a high note with a home victory over Croatia on Saturday.

The Dark Blues host opponents ranked 56th in the world in a 2pm kick off at Iffley Road.

As the match falls out of term time, Oxford will field a mixed side, but will still be hopeful of going one better than in November when they were narrowly beaten by Russia.

The match will also enable Croatia to prepare for their European Nations Cup Division 2A fixture with the Netherlands in Amerstam.

Entry is £5 for adults and £2 for concessions, with the gates and bars will be open from noon.

OXFORD University RFC are holding their invitational sevens competition at Iffley Road on Sunday, May 11.

The event, which is being held for a third successive year, will include elite men’s and women’s elite tournaments.
