  • Description

    A black American has been included for the first time in the Oxford University Rugby Union team to meet cambridge University at Twickenham on 10 December.

    Ray Burse, aged 23, from Kentucky won selection after a successful debut for Oxford against Gloucester last Saturday (30 November) when he scored a try and made another.

    This was Ray Burse's first top-class match and he did much to help the Oxford team to victory, 21-13. Burse's Blue (University cap) will be gained against Cambridge on the left wing.

    He is, by nature, an athlete and ball player. Already he has represented the University in athletics and basketball. He is in his second year at Oxford University, studying for a degree in organic chemistry. It remains to be seen whether he will be the catalyst of an Oxford victory against Cambridge.
