After a two-week break (should only have been one, but the weather wasn’t playing nicely) the first XV were back on the Common and the opposition was from over the border – Oxford Harlequins.  Sadly, it was a rather depleted Marlborough side that was put out due to the accumulation of injuries which have been sustained by the Marlborough squad.  Three of the lads managed to injure themselves at training – not very helpful.
