Army Scupper Navy in Tough-Out

lifting-the-cup

Army 30 pts—Royal Navy 17 ARMY are again BABCOCK and Inter Services Champions — what more could you want. Well quite a lot really, chanted 80,000 at Twickenham, and the REDS provided it with something to spare. After a ‘sludgy’ start where the Army played with high energy but a strange mixture of excessive confidence and carelessness they went into ... Read More »


Hot Bath for Army

Jack finds Tams

Bish, Bosh, Fizz and more Fizz. This was a great Army performance against a fine bunch of athletes from Bath Rugby. The ‘pros’ showed silky steel in all departments but were countered by a high octane Army fifteen-man game that obliterated memories of Halton. The scrums were pretty even, Chris Budgen, Pete Austin and Turkish Titchard- Jones were both a ... Read More »


Army Battles High Level Air Defence

Hiscock in Cruise Control

The Army suffered a glitch—no more–on the road to Twickenham. They beat the RAF by 35 pts—26, it could have been more, it should have been more but it wasn’t. Three or four tries went begging providing much food for thought and analysis. Nothing too ‘hi-faluting’—more of an MOT than a major overhaul. Back to reality. At 35 pts–26 the ... Read More »

MOBBS would have been proud

Ian Martin - Hey diddle diddle

Bedford Blues 43 pts – Army 29 England international Lt Col Edgar Mobbs, CO of the 7th Northamptons, who was killed in battle at the Somme in 1917, would have appreciated the rugby and character shown by both the Bedford Blues and the Army at the Memorial Match on 13th March. Maybe it’s a cliché but this match defined a ... Read More »


Army Teaches Students a Lesson

cambridge-2013

Army 39 pts — Cambridge University 5 pts THE ARMY REDS welcomed senior players back to training but nevertheless fielded a largely experimental XV to beat Cambridge 39pts-5 at Aldershot on 20 February. The performance fully justified the decision of Army senior coach Axel Rees to “ring the changes on the evidence”. A succession of well supported breaks, one gem ... Read More »


Students give Army a lesson

‘Bull’ Bulamacau opens up on the right wing

To go under by 14 pts—24 to a far from bright Oxford University team at Aldershot was not a great start to the Army season. No escaping the hard truth– it was a poor performance where senior players remained below the parapet and some ‘’recruits’ failed to emerge from the smoke. It is too easy for those in the warm ...
