Former Cal captain Derek Asbun scored a try for Oxford University as they went down 32-20 to Championship club Esher.

This was the final warmup for Oxford before they take on Cambridge Thursday, December 8 in the Varsity Match at Twickenham.

Asbun was again a solid performer for Oxford, starting at blindside flanker.

Jason Law, another former Cal player in graduate school at Oxford, was on the bench. Coming back from injury, Law will have some work to do to get a Blue (a rugby Blue is awarded when a player plays in the Varsity rugby match). Asbun, for his part, seems to be favored to attain that honor as he has excelled since starting the fall season with his new team.
