The 103rd University Match Oxford University v
Cambridge University for the Bowring Bowl
Total commitment combined with the fitness of youth is the hallmark of this historic fixture.
MARK BAILEY , capped on England's tour to South Africa, will look to fly-half ROB ANDREW to dictate tactics and add to the 24 points he has already scored in two previous matches against Oxford.
The dark blues are seeking the victory that has become so elusive - it has come their way only twice in the last 12 encounters. Former Cambridge blue, now captain of Oxford, TIM O'BRIEN , may wish he had never changed sides. Commentators

British debut in Guys and Dolls in 1953, and Danny La Rue broke box office records in 1980, saving the theatre from certain closure. Roy Hudd remembers

'Ray is very good for me', she says. 'At the House they say flattering things they don't always mean. Then I get home and I'm brought down with a bump with questions like where have I put his razor, or why wasn't there any milk.'
