It's happening again!

2016 was the eighth Medics Rugby Challenge, hosted by Plymouth Albion and supported by Formedia Marketing and Public Relations.

The first game in 2009 was a draw, followed the year after by a well deserved victory by the Medics' team. For four years, the Medics struggled in the last quarter of the game when the size and fitness of the Royal Marines took its toll but in 2015 they played some fantastic rugby and came away with a win 22 - 7 win.  Last year honours went to 'Royal' in atrocious weather conditions!

As usual, the evening started with a youth match between Devonport Services and Ivybridge Under 16s, Services taking the honours last year.  From the Stand, due to the weather, the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines entertained the crowd of 1500.  This was followed by a minutes silence, in memory of those who have given their lives in the service of their country.

The auction which followed the game raised an incredible £4400 and the Medics Rugby Challenge raised just short of £20000 for the Royal Marines Charity.

However you were involved, on behalf of those unlucky enough to benefit from your support, thank you!

Please put Tuesday 7 November 2017 in your diary and we hope to see you at the game.
