The Army Sevens team were unbeaten in 2012 including winning the Defence World Sevens in Denver, USA. A historic achievement for Army Rugby. They have just been announced as the Army Sport Control Board’s team of the year a fitting tribute to the squad for their achievements.
I am sure the whole playing squad would not mind me pointing out the contribution of their coach “Alfred” . Alfred Vanua always seems to keep out of the lime light but his work with the squad is evident not only in their play but in their off field togetherness and spirit. Congratulations to Alfred and his team.
In announcing the award the team let their followers know that they are first and foremost their team, soldiers first and that they will be remembering the soldiers they play for this weekend at the various acts of remembrance around the country.
