Corps Championship 2017 / 18


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.

Army tackle the Swans by the Sea

Head Coach Captain Andy Sanger is not adverse to ‘testing’ his teams resolve; the last time he took them to Wales the REDs were categorically ‘beaten up’ by a fast and physical Bedwas side that had the Army XV wondering where the next assault was coming from; a trip to Swansea that is steeped in Welsh rugby folk law was ...

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. Many thought this was a game too far, and perhaps after 20 mins with the Russian ... Read More »

Army A 15 French Army 6

The Army A team hosted the French Army in what has now become a traditional starred fixture. The French still have a huge ‘homeland security commitment’ and it is to their credit they honoured the fixture considering how stretched their Army currently is. Some familiar faces returned that had played for the French Combined Service during IDRC 2015 so the ... Read More »
