The Oxford Cavaliers season kicks of with a pre-season friendly at Halifax Barmy Army this weekend. The game has added importance as is raising money for Cancer Research.
The game has raised massive publicity in Halifax where it is being played, with 200 tickets already sold for the game and a crowd of 500 people expected on the day.
The Halifax Barmy Army are the supporter’s team of the Halifax Bue Soxs, but is going to be no easy task for the Cavaliers. As they try and build on last year success in the Total RL Summer Conference, which saw them finish in their best position for a number of years.
Mark Shaw of the Cavaliers was key in organising the game said “This is a great for us to play a game up in the heart land of rugby league, as well as too raise money for a really good cause. Hopefully the game will become a regular fixture.”
Club Captain Mark Lester said “This is a great chance for the team to practice the moves that we have been using in training, as well introducing our new players to the team.”
