UKAFRU vs Bath United
The Recreational Ground
Wednesday 10 May 17
Serving military personnel from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force men’s rugby teams will combine to face Bath United at the Rec on Monday the 10th of May 2017.
The game is replay of the fixture that was rained-off in November, and will see the men of the UK Armed Forces Rugby team face off against the young stars of Bath Rugby. The UKAF men will be keen to take revenge after last year’s game, which saw Bath emerge as 35-7 winners.
Men’s military rugby has never been more popular, not only within the services – the general public have also provided a huge amount of support. Every year the Army V Navy game puts on a fantastic show in front of a packed Twickenham crowd, the inter-Services is closely fought and the UK Armed Forces have come closer to a sell-out crowd at the Rec with record crowds in recent years.
Last year’s game between UKAF and Bath was a spectacle of rugby, with a brace from Bath centre Max Clark and a spectacular length of the field try from winger Jeff Williams. This year the Bath team will likely feature more of the same young talent, in addition to a number of their first team players, who will take the field at their historic Recreation Ground.
