I used to select the Major Stanley's XV against Oxford University from 1984-1992. I then became a Trustee of Major Stanley's which owns the ground on behalf of OURFC. Major Stanley never played rugby nor did he attend the University as a student but he founded this game and was chairman of the England Selectors at one stage!
It was a bitingly cold rainy day at Iffley Road but over 250 friends sat down for lunch and there was a crowd of about 1000 to watch the game. Oxford won 21-14.
