The British Army men’s rugby union team defeated the Navy in a thrilling match at Twickenham.
In a game where either team may have won, the men in red clinched the Inter Services crown with a late display.
After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the match returned to Twickenham Stadium.
The Navy got out to a faster start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead thanks to a penalty from Jordan Gott and a try from veteran player Ben Priddey.
The Army, on the other hand, responded with two unconverted tries from Matt Dawson and Pete Austin, bringing the score to 10-10 at halftime.
The second half was a thrilling back-and-forth struggle that demonstrated why this match belongs at Twickenham Stadium.
Craig Duncan and Sam Matavesi efforts drove the Senior Service fans into raptures, and the Navy felt they had the job done both times.
But it wasn’t to be, as the Army’s overwhelming strike proved crucial.
The Army won 35-27 thanks to goals from Josh Wright and Viliame Kotobalavu.
