This summer the Royal Armoured Corps rugby team was able to travelled to compete in the 9th iteration of the US Army RugbyTown 7s held in Denver Colorado. A fantastic elite level invitational tournament which took in teams from all over the States as well as many international sides.
It was a marvellous opportunity for the corps side to partake in some absolutely top flight matches and to engage with like minded individuals from all branches of the US Military. We were lucky enough to schedule a full training session with the US Marine Corps; this was used to it’s full potential and was a good chance to share stories and make new friends.
The competition proved stiff and despite nerves during the first fixture of the tournament the team grew in both spirit and confidence throughout putting in a stellar performance against the final and arguably most robust opponent in the group. This was a great opportunity and would not have been possible without the support of Team Army without whom this fledgling centre would not have been achievable. The Royal Armoured Corps has since secured an invitation to next years tournament and is Very excited to participate again.
