The match was scheduled to be broadcast on the Forces News YouTube as part of an Inter Services double bill.

The women's Royal Navy rugby league team have withdrawn from this Saturday's Inter Services fixture after being unable to field a team.

They were due to face the Army a week after they battled the RAF in their competition opener – where they lost 24-20

The Army announced on Twitter that they will instead be facing Stanningley and West Bowling A.R.L.F.C, who have stepped in to field a combined team in the Royal Navy's place. 

The men's Army v Navy clash will still go ahead and could decide the Inter Services title.

If the Navy win, they will be crowned champions for the first time in five years and you can watch the match LIVE on the Forces News YouTube channel.

You can watch the action at 16:00 UK time.
