This Sunday the Saints will be hosting our old foes, the Cornish Sharks...
The two teams haven’t met on the field since a brutal 2013 contest which saw a struggling Oxford team make the long trip to Cornwall and returned empty handed.
The 2015 Saints however are a dramatically different squad, with many new experienced players and talented rookies joining for the season.
Both teams are known for possessing strong defenses, so this game could come down to which offensive unit wants it more.
The Sharks have a long trip ahead of them and are known for playing better at home, but they did manage to beat the Swindon Storm on the road in their first game of the season.
The SFC West continues to be an exciting division with each team looking competitive but neither team pulling out to an early lead.

Last week, Oxford suffered a 50-16 defeat to Swindon and will be looking to bounce back on Sunday. The Sharks are also coming off a 30-10 loss at the hands of the Bristol Apache, who Oxford dispatched in a thrilling 35-34 finish in week 2!
The game is being held at Abingdon Rugby Club, Lambrick Way, OX14 5TJ. Kick-off is at 2:30pm and entry is FREE. There is plenty of parking available and a variety of food and drink will be served throughout.
