Portsmouth Welcomes a 'Feast of Rugby' on Wed 14 Mar
This Wed sees a ‘Feast of Rugby' in Portsmouth as both the Royal Navy Mariners and Women do battle against the Prison Service and Trojans.
The first to kick-off at 5pm is the Mariners who take on their old rivals the Prison Service who last season had snatched victory from the Mariners in the final few minutes of a very competitive game.
This is followed by the Royal Navy Women v Trojans kick-off 7.30pm in what will be their penultimate fixture prior to the 2012 Inter-Services competition. In previous seasons, this fixture has proven to be fantastic preparation for the Women being both a competitive and challenging game. The match will give Head Coach, Lt (Sam) Cuff RN (RNAS Yeovilton) and Assistant Coach, NA (Chris) Ellor (RNAS Yeovilton) the opportunity to assess the players prior to the start of the Inter-Services training camp and their final preparatory game against the French Navy in Toulon on the 11 April.
