Army teams return to Inter Services rugby with double victory over RAF

The services went head-to-head at Gloucester's Kingsholm Stadium.

The men and women of the British Army got the better of the RAF in an Inter Services Rugby Union double-header in Gloucester on Saturday.

First up at the Kingsholm Stadium, the Army Women returned to the Inter Services competition with a 24-10 win, after going 12-0 up at the halfway stage.

Next up, to kick off the men's competition, the Army again got the better of the Air Force, with a 35-20 victory to kickstart their 2022 campaign.

Debutant Courtney Pursglove was the star of the show in the women's match with tries for the Army - including a superb interception and lengthy run.

The men's match saw Bath's Semesa Rokoduguni show his talent for the men in red while it was a fantastic first Inter Services match for Jack Johnson.

He got the man-of-the-match award with a stellar display.
