The Blues Academy U19s travel up the A1, ahead of the Blues 1st XV, to take on Doncaster Academy as a curtain raiser to the Doncaster vs Blues Championship league game.  In the pack Ollie Pescott-Frost and Leon Patel-Champion start at prop, with Chayse Tyler at hooker;  Ethan Hughes starts at second row, with Jacob Turner moving to the flank, and Jack Spurr moving to No. 8.  In the back line Callum Tormey stats at fly half; Adrian Sanday (St. Joseph’s College, Ipswich) makes his debut at centre, and Tom Fawsett returns from England U18 duty on the wing.  On the bench George Cave, Sam Copeland and Kyron Houston all return from injury and scrum half Alex Crocker (Henley College and Ireland U18s) makes his debut.    


Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said: …. “An away game at the same venue as the 1st XV is a great way to end our 15-a-side season.  With a 12.30 Kick Off, the Blues Followers have arranged to come early to Doncaster to watch the game.  We hope Blues supporters travelling to Doncaster by car can get there early to watch the Academy game as well.”

“The lads have trained well this week and are looking forward to ending the 15-a-side season well.”


The game is at Doncaster Rugby Club, Castle Park, Armthorpe Road, Doncaster, DN2 5QB.

The Academy game kicks off at 12.30pm with the 1st XV game at 2.30pm
