The Light Blue women, captained by Fiona Shuttleworth (Pembroke, Veterinary Medicine), hope to continue chasing Oxford's overall number of victories, building on their successes in the 2018 and 2017 fixtures. Fiona started at blindside flanker in in the 2017 Varsity Match, then openside flanker, alongside her twin sister, Jenni Shuttleworth (Churchill, Medicine), in the 2018 Women's Varsity Match. Women's team manager Alice Elgar (Girton, Veterinary Medicine) is also a veteran Varsity Match Blue, having started at lock in both 2017 and 2018.
Captained by Stephen Leonard (Emmanuel, Medicine), the Light Blue men will be looking to even the score after last year's defeat. "There's no beating around the bush," said Stephen early in 2019, "no-one is happy with what happened in December but we’re actually in a very privileged position because we hopefully have 16 returning Blues next year which is actually pretty unheard of”.
