Match preview

By Ben Peterson

The 3's host Ipswich 2's at Volac Park tomorrow in the last game of the Greene King IPA Eastern Counties One Plate.

Both teams haven't had much joy in the plate competition and although Cambridge beat Ipswich at home at the start of the league fixtures Ipswich were awarded the victory and points as we couldn't field a front row.

Putting that behind us, we look forward to the return fixture as part of another "Super Saturday" of rugby at Grantchester Rd with all three teams playing at home. The headline story of the weekend will be the amount of youth players stepping up to make their senior debuts along with youth team graduates featuring in the 1st and 2nd XV's as well. The future looks bright for the Blood and Sand as the club continues to provide a pathway to senior rugby from the junior ranks and is also testament to the coaching and culture the club continues to cultivate. With the joined up coaching philosophy players transition into the senior sides is made easier with the goal of playing the same Cambridge brand of rugby throughout the club.

We wish the debutantes all the best tomorrow and have no doubt they will be a real value add to the team as it seeks to finish the competition with a win and set themselves up nicely for the County Cup final on the 27th April at Saffron Walden RFC.
