Army Rugby Union Inter-Corps Rugby Union Championship

Inter-Corps Championship Information

Introduction

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.

British Army send ‘To Russia with Love’

running-the-lines

There is much political unrest in the World currently and many people raised an eyebrow when this fixture was announced, British Army v The Russian Nation team in Spain; a match born out of relationships established at the recent U20 World Cup in Manchester.
