The Army knew a win on the day would secure them the trophy after a high scoring victory over the Royal Navy last week, while the RAF needed to win by nine points to finish in top spot. The RAF kicked the first points of the game with a penalty, but it was Aeron James who put the Army into the lead with a first-half try which he also converted. The hosts responded with another penalty and the sides went in at halftime with the score 7-6 to the Army. The Army made their pressure count in the second period scoring three more tries, two of them converted, to run out 26-6 winners and to take the Inter Services title in the process.
