Military Sides Lose In Rugby League Challenge Cup Second Round

There were heavy losses for the Army and RAF women's sides against Super League teams.

Both the Army and RAF Women’s teams have bowed out of the Women's Challenge Cup at the hands of Super League teams.

The RAF were soundly beaten 56-0 at Bradford Bulls while the Army suffered a similar result to Wigan Warriors in Coventry.

The 50-14 loss meant both military sides were out at the second round.

Held at Sleaford Rugby Club in Lincolnshire, the RAF were playing in the second round of the competition for the first time ever.

It did not quite go to plan though. Bradford, who won the competition just two years ago, ran in 12 tries on their way to victory.

The Bulls had two England internationals in their ranks and Army Hardcastle helped herself to five tries throughout the game.
