12 Regiment Royal Artillery win Army rugby union Premiership final

Watch: Highlights of the 2023 Army rugby union Premiership final.

12 Regiment Royal Artillery have won the 2023 Army rugby union Premiership final in Newbury.

They beat 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh by a 29-12 scoreline to win their fifth title in 10 years.

12 Reg RA featured a number of stars who played at Twickenham Stadium for the 2023 Army v Navy match with Owain Davies impressing.

Davies opened the scoring for 12 Reg RA with a well-taken try and further scores from Alfredo Naulivou, Dom Carrol and Tom Chave had them in cruise control.

1 Royal Welsh hit back in the second half through tries from James Disney and Misa Rokotuiwakaya and a sin bin for 12 Regt RA's Josh Vakasilikakala sprung hope of a comeback.

However, the dominant Thorney Island-based team swiftly scored their fifth try of the game through Pete Austin to seal their victory.
