Army expecting Navy to bring their 'A' game' in Twickenham clash

The British Army men's rugby union team captain says his side are expecting the Royal Navy to bring their 'A' game in their clash at Twickenham Stadium this weekend.

The team has been training in Aldershot ahead of their clash against their rivals on Saturday 30 April.

You can watch or listen to both of the men's and women's Army v Navy matches with BFBS, with coverage starting at 1:30pm.

It will be the final match of his career for Army skipper Captain Jamie Miller and he's expecting a battle against the Senior Service.

"I think we always get a good game from the Royal Navy," said Capt Miller.

"They're going to come with their absolute 'A' game, we're going to bring ours and hopefully, we'll come off better."

One man who is making his Inter Services debut in the fixture is Mitieli Vulikijapani.

He's been a key player for rugby league team Hull FC in the Super League but is familiar with the union side of the sport.

"It actually started in sevens," he said.

"I got a chance to play sevens for the Army and then moved over to the 15s."

You can watch or listen to both matches with BFBS on Saturday 30 April - find out more details here.
