LATEST - GAME CANCELLED

Unfortunatley Cambridge are unable to field a side and the match has been cancelled

=====================================================

After mixed fortunes in the August pre-season warm up games, with a loss to Leinster, and wins against London Scottish and Esher U21, the Blues Academy start their regular season with a home game against Cambridge U21 XV on Saturday at Goldington Road (Kick Off 2.00 pm).

The Blues Academy made their first away trip of the season and returned with a 22pts – 0 win over an older Esher U21 XV.  Ahead by 17pts – 0 at half time the Blues had to dig deep in the final quarter to keep out an Esher side who grew in confidence as the game progressed.

After a tough game against Leinster last week, the Blues Academy continued their pre-season preparations with a 29pts – 21 win over London Scottish.  With both sides having large squads the game was played over three 30 minute periods, to give both sets of coaches a chance to look at new players and new combinations.
