Whos best at what Sports????

#1
What area (REME, RE, Infantry, Int, etc)
are best at:

Football?
Rugby?
Swimming?
Cricket?
Skiing/Boarding?
Martial arts?

feel free to add other sports and an overal "BEST" area.
No random guesses, only people who serve, experienced it and perhaps who hve seen recent match-ups/results.

There will be athletes in most regiments. I would expect the Infantry, and especially, the Paras to have a higher percentage due to the extreme nature of their training.

I understand why you think Paras be good due to fitness and most likely are good runners, but think about strength etc people like Royal Engineers etc need for their job, their big blokes lol so maybe theyd be better at things like rugby,
I want to hear from current serving soldiers? is your area winning rugby matches? tug of wars? fights? pissups comps? etc etc haha

You know, I would always recommend staying away from LSD and Crystal meth at this time of day. You are heading for a hell of a comedown around 7pm.
