The match at Loughborough University is a 12 noon kick-off, with head coach Alan Dickens saying: “The game against Loughborough University is another excellent opportunity for us to put our training into practice and assess how the players work as a group.

“We had a strong hit-out against Oxford University last Saturday, and our preparation in camp this week has also gone really well. Each player’s commitment and mindset has been fantastic as we continue preparations for our Six Nations opener against Scotland at Twickenham Stoop in two weeks’ time.”
