Army V Navy Team Announcement


Head Coach Andy Sanger is pleased to announce the following selection to face the Royal Navy on Saturday 28 April at Twickenham.

He commented “I would personally like to congratulate all 22 players on making the match day squad. In what has been a highly successful season for the Army Senior XV the process for selection has been extremely difficult and all selected thoroughly deserve their place. Those selected have been pushed all the way by the other squad members who have unfortunately not been chosen. Without the contribution of the other squad members pushing those selected then we would not be as prepared as we are.

I would also like to thank all the coaching and management staff for the support given to myself and the players during the season. A tremendous amount of effort and commitment has been shown by all squad members and will hopefully reap rewards on Saturday with the lifting of the Inter Services trophy.

This has all been made possible of course by the support of Commanding Officers, and units to all personnel within the squad, during this period of high operational tempo this commitment is even more valued.”
