Results from the Rugby Final

The Final of the Briggs Equipment UK Shield, the RLC UK inter-unit knockout competition for those units not in the ARU Premiership was held in Abingdon on Wednesday 15 April 2015. This annual 15-a-side tournament for men, open to all Regular and Reserve RLC units saw 9 Regt Face off against 3 Regt in the final.

Despite the sweltering 25 degree heat on the day both team fought like lions and the standard of Rugby was fantastic. The game saw many outstanding tries and the lead swapped frequently until the last 10 minutes when 3 Regt managed to establish and develop a firm lead. A brilliant match won by 3 Regt but great rugby, fitness and spirit from both teams. Despite some outstanding individual performances, the deserving man of the match was Sergeant Ratu Ligairi of 3 Reg.

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
