The Blues Academy U19s travel to take on the Nottingham Academy side on Sunday April 3rd, Kick Off 2.00pm.

The Blues make three changes to the starting line-up that played Ealing Trailfinders in their last game.  In the pack Cameron Lawes starts at second row and Jack Spurr (BMS School) at flanker.  In the back line Paddy McDuell, the ex-Bedford School fly half, who is home from University, starts at ten and Ben Phillips returns from injury to start at inside centre. 

A number of players make their debuts on the bench;  prop Ben Cave (Bedford School), flanker Jacob Turner (Chipping Norton and Wasps Academy), and winger Malcolm Milligan (Moulton College) as the Blues Academy search for a return to winning ways.


Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said: …. “We have played Nottingham twice this season with one win and one loss.  We beat them in November but lost in December.  This game gives us the chance to move ahead.  The lads have trained well since our last game at Ealing, and are looking forward toi getting back into action.”


The game is at the Nottingham ground - The Bay, Holme Rd, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 5AA, and kicks off at 2.00 pm.
