The Army women's rugby team has set its sights on a trip to Heidelberg in the New Year to play the German national side.

It comes after the players' hopes of taking on one of the leading club sides in the country were thwarted.

A game was cancelled between them and Aylesford Bulls, who are partnered with Harlequins and currently sit third in the Women's Premiership.
