The Adjutant General's Corps (AGC) has claimed the women's Inter-Corps rugby union title after comfortably beating the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC).

The entertaining final between the two sides brought the curtain down on the Army women's rugby season.

It saw the AGC play at a high tempo from the off, racing into an early lead.

A quick tap-and-go penalty ended with former Wales sevens specialist Chantelle Miller dotting down for an unconverted try.

There were a number of players on the pitch fresh from the Army’s Inter-Services victory over the Navy just days earlier but it was one who missed out on that win who crossed over for the AGC's second try.

Amy Robinson linked up with Miller to dart under the posts for a converted score and put her team 12-0 up.

The RLC suffered another setback towards the end of the first half. Just as they were gathering some forward momentum, Robinson popped up with a timely interception for her team.

The Royal Military policewoman stole in for her second try as the AGC took grip of the game to lead 19-0 at the break.

The second half saw the RLC try to ignite their attacking threat and burly back row Bani bulldozed her way up-field but a lack of support saw the surge fizzle out.

Instead, it was the AGC who added to their tally as Nancy Kuva's quick penalty put Sarah Mimnagh in for try number four.

By now the AGC players were full of confidence and their smart off-loading game almost opened the RLC defence once more, before Ellie Wood was bundled into touch.

There was more last-ditch defending minutes later as Wood looked to score on the other wing.

This time she was hit by the Exocet-aim of fullback Bray.

Kuva was then at the heart of the AGC's final try, with her delayed pass to Robinson seeing her side cut through the RLC ranks.

The scrum-half remained in support, getting the ball to Miller to crash in for her second try.

To their credit, the RLC kept plugging away and were rewarded for their efforts when a break from weaving winger Peters led to a try.

Although she was hauled down shy of the line, her team found themselves in a great attacking position.

Moments later they bundled themselves over for a consolation score as a delighted AGC ran out 29-5 victors.

As the AGC celebrate, focus now switches back to the Army squad who face the French forces in Normandy next month.
