Oxford RL take on York City Knights on Sunday, playing for the first time at Henley.
With Oxford’s normal Iffley Road ground unavailable due to pitch maintenance, the club have switched the Kingstone Press Championship One fixture to Dry Leas.
Oxford coach Tony Benson welcomed the decision.
“Our aim has always been to get more people playing rugby league in Oxfordshire and this gives us a fantastic opportunity to show off this great game.”
Benson has a growing injury list, with Jimmy Rowland, Karl Temata, Luke Evans, Sean Morris and Valu Bentley doubts, but JJ Baird returns.
Oxford: from Baird, Benson, Blaney, Blewitt, Brooker, Crabtree, Connick, Davies, Ellison, Evans, Hoggins, Hayles, Lynch, J Morris, S Morris, Mulkeen, Newton, O’Keeffe, Parker, Rice, Roden, Rowland, Sharratt, Slade-Jones, Temata, Thompson, Vickers, Winfield, Wright.
