With fifty minutes of the 99th Army Navy match gone, the Army were leading 26-7. They had taken control of a match which had started with the early skirmishes being shared. Not for the first time in their illustrious history the Royal Navy were facing what seemed insurmountable odds. However, for the next half hour, led by their youth but guided by some of their experienced warriors, they stemmed and then turned the tide in their favour to twice level the match in the last ten minutes. The Army Navy trophy was shared but the draw gave them the greater prize, a first Inter Services title since 2010.
