Navy Win Tri-Service Rugby Championships

They defeated both the Army and the Air Force on their way to victory.

The Royal Navy have won the Tri-Service Rugby Union Championship in Scotland.

A team from all three services were in action in Edinburgh, but two wins for the senior service meant they were crowned champions.

Eldon Myers impressed for the Navy and won Player of the Tournament thanks to two impressive performances.

Despite Andrew Chalmers scoring the first try of the tournament for the Army, it was the Navy who roared back to win game one.

Myers scored and helped his team to a 12-5 win.

The Navy's dominance meant they were handed the trophy at the end of the day.

The Army looked to bounce back against the Air Force and managed to pull out a win by a 12-0 scoreline.

Chalmers was on the scoresheet again in that game, but the Navy sealed the title in game three.

Myers grabbed himself two tries while Sam Benzie also went over as the RAF were beaten by 35-3.

The victory gave the Navy bragging rights at the Oriam National Sports Centre.
