The RAF's Josh McNally made his debut for Bath while Army star Lewis Bean played for Northampton Saints.

A number of Forces players were in action for their club sides over the weekend.

The 2018 RAF Sportsman of the Year Josh McNally was in action for Bath in a 36-28 victory over Worcester Warriors.

McNally moved to Bath from London Irish in the summer and made his first Bath appearance as a substitute, which pleased the England hopeful.

For the Army, Lewis Bean appeared for the second straight week as a Northampton Saints player.

The Inter Services champion ran out for the Saints for the first time in last week’s Premiership Cup match and followed that up with an appearance against Wasps.

Meanwhile, the RAF’s Amy Cokayne was on the scoresheet for Harlequins as they dispatched Worcester’s women’s team at Sixways Stadium.

The 48-7 win took 'Quins to top spot after just two games in the Premier 15s League.

Cokayne is a new arrival at Harlequins this season and played a major role in the RAF’s historic Inter Services title win in September.

She also represented England at the Six Nations tournament this summer.
