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

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.
