Corps Championship 2015 / 16


Army Rugby Union Inter-Corps Rugby Union Championship

Inter-Corps Championship Information


The Corps Championship is open to teams from the Corps and Infantry representative sides of the Regular Army. A separate Women’s Championship is also competed for. Its objective is to provide a platform for talented players to play above regimental level and for those players deemed capable – as a stepping-stone towards representing the Army at the Senior Level. You will see that for this season we have made some changes to the Web Page. A link to a separate page on the left will take you to the fixture results and league placings for each League, as well as any match reports for that League.
