Inter Services rugby: How to watch Army v Navy matches live

Watch: All Rugby Inter Services games will be shown live on Forces News YouTube and BFBS TV.

One of the most gripping, hard-hitting sporting competitions in the forces calendar will have a dramatic finale at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday and you can watch it LIVE – only with BFBS.

The 2023 Inter Services rugby union championships has seen both men's and women's teams from all three services battle for dominance.

The Army v Navy event on 13 May closes out on the tournament and will also be shown exclusively LIVE on the Forces News YouTube channel, with serving personnel also able to catch up via BFBS TV.

The Army are the reigning champions in both the men's and women's competitions after big wins over the Navy teams at the home of English rugby last year.

However, in Plymouth, both the RAF and Navy players put on a show in rainy conditions with a 13-13 draw in the men's match and a big RAF win in the women's contest.

The action continued with round two of the tournament from Gloucester's Kingsholm Stadium as the Army were convincing winners in both men's and women's matches against the RAF.

That means the Army can retain their men's and women's Inter Services crowns with victory in the Army v Navy matches.

All coverage details regarding the remaining matches championships are:

  • British Army men v Royal Navy men - Twickenham Stadium - 13 May - 13:30 BST - LIVE on Forces News YouTube and BFBS TV (for serving personnel only).
  • British Army women v Royal Navy women - Twickenham Stadium - 13 May - 16:45 BST - LIVE on Forces News YouTube and BFBS TV (for serving personnel only).
