1st Team players selected for the Army

17th January 2018

The Army Rugby side will take on Cambridge University tonight at Cambridge and the starting XV contains three servicemen who are all training with the London Scottish squad.

Hooker Pete Austin, Prop Gareth Smith and Full Back Owain Davies all start the game this evening and will be hoping they can help their side to a win.

Austin has had some regular involvement in the 1st XV squad this season, he has racked nine appearances in total. Smith has been a constant feature for the side in the British and Irish Cup and has been involved with Wasps in the A-League competition. Full Back Davies has struggled with some niggling injuries recently and has struggled to force his way into the side but made his London Scottish debut against Jersey in the B&I Cup.

All three have been a credit to the Army this season and the manner in which have they applied themselves combining their Forces responsibilities with training full time with the squad.

We wish the Army the very best this evening.
