British Army beat RAF in Cyprus Inter Services clash

A 25-17 win at RAF Akrotiri was the first Inter Services rugby union match to take place in Cyprus since 2019.

The Army have won the bragging rights in Cyprus after a 25-17 Inter Services win over the Royal Air Force at RAF Akrotiri.

The first match between the two teams on the island since 2019 saw lots of fans in attendance but it was the away side who ran out winners.

A commanding first-half performance put the men in red in control and despite a late fightback from the Air Force, the Army took home the trophy.

"To win is big but to win on an RAF camp against the RAF is even bigger," said Army captain Staff Sergeant David Munson.

"The drinks will be absolutely sweeter tonight!"
