No surprise - French navy are the strongest of their armed forces teams. A game against the British Army would be really interesting.

Didn't it end in a massive fight last year?

Nah, that was in 1944. :D
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

In an Inter Services Cup between the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, the Air Force won 69-3*, helped no doubt by *I think* 4 players (mentioned in commentary) being in a Tyrrells Championship club.


*Other results (including the scoreboard at the ground) had the final conversion being missed (leaving it at 67-3), but commentators and me believed it had gone in - replay is up at 'The Forces Sports Show on YouTube.

First little steps for women rugby in Iraq: some women playing in a pause of the men's match Kurdistan v Baghdad, in Erbil.
The group of players was composed by women "from Erbil, Baghdad and foreign communities"
