8 Trg Bn REME win the Naivalurua Cup

By Tim Holland

The Lyneham based unit continue to fill their trophy cabinet, adding the Naivalurua Cup to the Yeoman Cup won in 2017.

The Army RL (Inter-Unit) Nav 9s was held at MOD Lyneham on Wed 30 May 18. Results as follows:

  • RTR won the Bowl comp.
  • 12/16 Regt RA won the Shield comp.
  • 32/47 Regt RA won the Plate comp.
  • 8 Trg Bn REME won the Army RL Nav 9s Cup.

Great effort from 39 Engr Regt who travelled from Kinloss and lost to the RTR in the Bowl Final. Well done to the LD who travelled from Catterick and were beaten in Golden Point Extra time by 32/47 Regt RA in the Plate Final and to 5 Regt RA who also travelled from Catterick and were beaten in the Cup Final by 8 Trg Bn REME. Well done to all the teams who took part, with particular thanks to all those who led and organised to get their soldiers onto the field of play in good order, including WO2 (AQMS) Graham Stott who ran the competition in Lyneham on the day.

Where next?

12 Regt RA win the Yeoman Cup 12 Regt RA have broken 8 Trg Bn REME's stranglehold on Army Rugby League's inter-unit competitions.
Lawson Cup Update The Lawson Cup is now well under way with 3 rounds played.
