  1. BFBS and Sky Sports Bring the Army Centenary Rugby Match to the Forces

    On Wednesday April 4th, the Army will be celebrating a hundred years of Rugby with a special match against a top Barbarians line-up at the Twickenham Stoop, home of Harlequins.

    In a unique co-operation, BFBS and Sky Sports are broadcasting the whole game live to British service personnel across the UK and around the world. British Forces on postings and operations overseas, from the Falklands to Afghanistan, can watch the match on BFBS TV, and Forces in the UK can watch on Sky Sports Extra.


    Several Army players will be returning from operations to play in this unique match, and a big crowd is expected at the Stoop. Kick off is at 19.45 UK time, enjoyed collectively in Catterick and Camp Bastion, Colchester and Basra.

    Could've sworn Luger had hung his boots up...
    ...or is that wishful thinking?
