I too was at the Oxford/Newcastle game, I. agree that the ground is a tidy little facility and 88 is about what I Thought the attendance was although I couldn't accurately count those on the other side of the main stand from me. I didn't mind £12 adult entry and could appreciate that the ground is probably more used to Union than League so if I had noticed any champagne ads it is only what I would expect the university elite of RU to quaff copiously but I Wouldn't know the names of any champers brands anyhow.
NEwcastle were stronger in all departments and scored their first in the first minute of the game although OXford soon struck back and a great covering tackle stopped a Newcastle breakaway try down the left wing in the first half and the final whisle diffused a bout of fisticuffs.
The Dozen or so Thunder fans made all the noise and we all know that hey are 'on our way', its a good tune and I can,t wait to hear them one day when they have an away following as good as Leigh.
It is however a pity the OXford do not have another home game until 12th April, is this right?
Yes not many of us though we sing none stop, were on our way is our number 1 song haha. Boom boom thunder army!
