The Blues Academy travel to Leicester to take on the Leicester Tigers Academy, at their Oval Park ground, on Saturday, KO 1.00 pm.

In the pack, Charley Robinson returns at prop with Charley Harvey at 2nd row, and Jacob Moody moving to flanker.  Dylan Leney starts at scrum half and Paul Aguele returns from injury on the wing with Liam Shields moving to full back.  The side will be captained by No. 8 Rahat Choudhury.
 

The Blues Academy have announced that Blues 1st XV players James Pritchard and Charlie Clare are joining the Blues Academy Coaching team.  Pritch and Charlie will help coach the Academy squad for the remainder of the season.

Congratulations to two ex-Blues Academy players named in the Cambridge University squad for the Varsity game to be played at Twickenham on Thursday December 10th.

Ollie Clough (on left) has been selected at outside centre, alongside Welsh International, and British Lion, Jamie Roberts, and Mike Phillips, also a centre, has been selected on the bench.  

On a blustery day at Goldington Road, the Blues Academy were in the lead for only one second of the game, but it was the final second of the game. 

With strong gusting winds making it difficult for both sides to establish any rhythm neither side could score in the first half.  Both sides were well matched, and found it difficult to break the line.
