Corps Championship 2013/14


Competition – Inter-Corps League Championship

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.

SAPPERS WIN JONES DRAKE CANONBALL Royal Artillery 15 pts—Royal Engineers 21 So close–the Sappers were always points ahead in this scorching encounter but the Gunners were never more than a converted try in arrears.
