A glorious day for playing rugby. Clear blue skies, a packed stadium and two sides with so much history and rivalry. The 101st Army Navy Match was not going to disappoint and was a game of drama, excitement, passion and its fair number of close calls.
The match probably turned on the sending off of Sam Matavesi. Would the Navy have won if he stayed on, we'll never know. In this blog I have tried to capture the essence of the game in 17 images captured by my ecellent team of photographers - Andy Bonner, Lee Crabb, Nick Flexman, Andrew Fosker, Cat Goryn and Neil Kennedy. Always makes my job easier when they produce such compelling imagary.
