Description

Army v Navy Match

The 102nd Army V Navy match took a while to get going as both sides struggled to find space in cold conditions at Twickenham. Both sides missed early penalties before Navy scrum half Gareth Rees stepped up to put a simple kick through the uprights for a 3-0 lead. It could have been 10-0 shortly afterwards as Rhys Dimmock-Williams broke free following a turnover to go under the posts. However, it was referred to the television match official who ruled there had been a knock on. No try and the Army breathed a sigh of relief. They then added salt to the Navy wound as following a penalty they kicked to the corner and from the 5m lineout their powerful number 8, Iferemi Boladau drove over for the opening core. Jona Davetanivalu again missed the lick but the Army led 5-3 a lead they held at half time.

In the second half it was again the Navy who scored first through a second Rees penalty before Lewis Bean crossed over from close range for the Army’s second try. Davetanivalu was successful with the conversion before replacement hooker Dwyer landed a simple penalty kick. For the first time the Army were two scores in front 15-6 but it did not last long as Jarrard Hayler soon crossed to reduce the lead to 15-11 with Nathan Huntley missing a difficult conversion. The match was delicately poised and the tense amongst the crowd was palpaple. It felt as if a single mistake would determine the outcome but instead it was sublime offload by Ravai Fatiaki who put Junior Bulumakau under the posts. Dwyer added the conversion and with only a few minutes left the match seemed over as the Army led 22-11. A fourth try through winger Ratu Naulogo was the icing on the cake and the Army had regained the Inter Service title their 46th win in the competition.
