The Blues Academy travel to play the Loughborough University Under 21 XV on Saturday, Kick Off is at 2.00 pm.

The Blues make eight changes (two of them positional) to the starting line that lost to Wasps Academy last week.  In the pack, Charley Robinson starts at hooker, with Cameron Lawes and Jacob Moody in the second row, with Callum Strachan moving to flanker.  Reuben Pritchard starts at flanker.  In the back line Max Titchener starts at centre and Matt Shacklady on the wing.  Scrum half Olly Howard captains the side.

Blues Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said: “We lost by one score to Loughborough at home back in October, so this gives us a chance to redress the balance.  We will need to be at our best to cope with Loughborough.  They have lots of quality players, and being a couple of years older than our guys, will give us a tough physical challenge.”


The game is at Loughborough University, East Park entrance, Epinal Way, Loughborough, LE11 3TT.
