Rugby in Libya

Lieutenant Paul Lane, Assistant Maritime Advisor in Libya and the RNRU Development Coach, Ady Cherrington at HMS TEMERAIRE have been supporting the development of rugby in Libya .  So far, they have managed to ship out some balls, post protectors from Twickenham and a set of goal posts from TEMERAIRE. More recently , a rugby match was arranged between the combined Tripoli teams and HMS ECHO, which received huge media attention in Libya, including a slot on SKY News. Predictably Tripoli won but HMS ECHO made them work for it.
