Army Rugby Union (Women)

This is our 15th season of women’s rugby within the Army and we continue to enhance the developments began when the team was founded in 1996. Today women’s rugby is vibrant and played at all levels around the world in competitions and events with last year seeing the senior team unbeaten in the Centenary Year for the ARU. With our aim to challenge and develop the team, we have been extremely busy organising a demanding fixture list playing both international and national teams from Canada, Scotland and Premiership Clubs within the UK.

Women’s rugby will only continue to develop with your support, if you would like to play or support the team, please do come along or contact any member of my team who will support you in anyway possible.

Look forward to seeing you over the forthcoming season.
