The RAF's rugby union players have scored a huge win over the Canadian Armed forces.

They beat their hosts 104-10 in Edmonton, on their second tour match in the country.

The Air Force men had already come back from behind to beat the Prairie Wolf Pack team 30-26 after landing in Calgary, Alberta.

It was a close contest against a side that competes in the Canadian Rugby Championship - the nation's highest level of domestic rugby.

But that tight encounter was not to be repeated in the airmen's second fixture of the tour.

Captained by Corporal Toby Mann, they were already leading 50-3 at half-time and it would only get worse after the interval for the Canadians.

The players have also had a tour to remember off the field so far, learning earlier this week that RAF and London Irish star Josh McNally has become a father for the first time.

They sent a video back home - in typical forces style - to congratulate their team-mate and his wife Sarah on the birth of Toby George McNally. You can watch it below...

The players have also visited a number of local military museums during their stay and taken in a Canadian football match at the McMahon Stadium in Calgary, home of the Calgary Stampeders.

It comes after grabbing the Air Force's first Inter-Services title since 2015 in April.
