There is some uncertainty over whether the annual Army v Navy event at Twickenham Stadium will take place next year after the announcement of the date for King Charles III's coronation.

It had already been organised that the Army v Navy men's and women's fixtures would take place at the home of English rugby on 6 May.

However, the coronation of the UK military's new Commander-in-Chief will now take place on that same day, casting doubt over the Twickenham clash.

The Army v Navy board released a statement on social media stating that they were "aware" of the coronation announcement and "do not have any other information how this impacts the Army v Navy match".

It's possible that the match may be rescheduled for another weekend.
