The summer 7’s season is drawing to the close and the Army Men’s and Women’s 7’s team competed in their penultimate competitions for the year at the 54th annual Harpenden 7’s this past bank holiday weekend.

The Men’s competition started first with the Army dominating their pool notching up three wins from three to head into the knock out stages to face the Samurai Bulldogs, an academy side full of young rugby talent.  The match went down to the wire with Samurai taking the victory 10-7 and also progressing on to win the tournament overall, many congratulations to them.
