Royal Navy men's rugby union team score late try in vital RAF Inter Services win

An 18-10 win in Ealing sets up a winner-takes-all Army v Navy battle at Twickenham Stadium.

The Royal Navy men's rugby union team have beaten the RAF in the second round of the 2022 Inter Services.

A late try from Jesse Lowe sealed the 18-10 win for the Senior Service in Ealing.

The result means that the winner of the Army-Navy match at Twickenham Stadium will be crowned champions.

It was a first half that both sides put a stamp on as Henry Hughes put the Navy in front and a Gareth Rees penalty made it 8-0.

However, the RAF hit back with a converted try from Alex Stanley.

It looked as though it would be 8-7 at the break but Lowe had other ideas.

His first try of the afternoon gave the Navy a six-point advantage and despite an RAF penalty, Lowe's second late on sealed the win.
