Army Inter Unit 7s Finals Day – Wed 16 May 12
The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards based in Fallingbostal Germany lifted the Army Inter Unit 7s Cup after 39 hard fought pulsating games of sevens, beating last years winners 17 Port & Maritime in a titanic final, flying Army winger LCpl Semesa Rokoduguni ran the show for the winners and his electric pace had some of the Army’s fastest unable to match his burst from a standing start.
It was great to see the likes of 1 Bn R Irish, SEAE, 3 Regt AAC and ART Pirbright committing to the day and playing attractive sevens rugby.
The match of the day had to be the quarter final between SEAE from Bordon v the SDG, after 14 minutes of sevens the game was tied at 21 a piece, the tankies from Germany managed to squeeze over and clinch the game in stoppage time but the REME team had pushed them to the very limit.
7 hours after the first game had kicked off last years reigning champions; 17 Port and Maritime faced up against the Germany winners the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, skill and flare was abundant from both teams, this was indeed sevens rugby at its very best, both teams crossed the line in the opening half and as they changed ends it was anyone’s game, the SGD’s pace in the end won the game and they lifted the trophy for the first time.
