Army v's RAF Rugby

Details of the Army v's RAF Rugby matches next month for anyone who is interested.

Gloucester RFC has already sold over 3000 tickets and it promises to be an epic day. But what we really want to do is fill Kingsholm, which can take up to 15,000, with service personnel and their families and friends, as well as some of the local community.

The day will be an action packed rugby festival with all three Army teams playing their RAF counterparts at the following times and locations:
  • Army Masters v RAF Vultures – Imijin Barracks – HQ ARRC K/O-1030hrs.
  • Army Women v RAF Women – Kingsholm Stadium K/O-1130hrs
  • Army Men v RAF Men – Kingsholm Stadium K/O-1500hrs.
There will be full stadium facilities and catering available throughout the day as well as plenty of other activities going on including marching bands, parachute displays and hopefully something that files. Hospitality packages are available from Gloucester Rugby Club.

Tickets are £15 seated, £10 standing and £1 for children, available from the Gloucester Rugby Ticket site: HomeGames: https://tickets.gloucesterrugby.co.uk. The military discounts are applied at checkout.

See you there

They've also cocked up the kick off times, only an hour between the start of the vets and the start of the ladies! Grrrr

I wouldn't mind if the games were adjacent like t Kneller Hall but thats frankly taking the p1ss

Did you paint yourself into the crowd?
Sadly No, but have kept tickets and programmes from the game and auction, so in 100 years Great-grandchild will have suitable provenance when they take it to Antiques Road Show !!!!!! (Spelling corrected )

"provenance" old chap. These speel chuckers can be a trial!
 
Going for the first time this year, really looking forward to it.

Also going to the Inter Service T20, which is an absolute hidden gem of a day.

Sport & beer, these are a few of my favourite things (sound of music Walt) :)

Turned out to be a good day of Rugby.
RAF Ladies sadly beat the Army 23-14, helped by the Army No 13, who whilst starting with go intentions and running "dummies", seemed to have that as her only play, so became more of a "dummy", after the RAF quickly saw that was all she was good for.
Still the guys more than made up for it by trouncing the RAF 43-3. Great day out and not a bad crowd.
