Army 7s

Army 7s Information


Our aim is to remain among the top world club sevens teams and we have the following simple mission statement: “To keep the British Army in the public eye through world class performances on the rugby field”

In addition to this mission we want the Sevens team to become a team that can develop and nurture talent and so to feed players to the Senior XV and Academy.
