2016 Army Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition

The 2016 Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition is on again, show-casing all that is good about Army rugby. This year, the competition will be expanded to seven teams; in addition to men’s and women’s teams from 1, 3, 6 , 7, 16 and 17 Brigades, the Combined Arms Training Centre (CATC) will also be entering teams. My money, as always, is on the mighty 3rd Brigade to dominate.

The Australian Army has a rich history of rugby competition, and indeed many ex-Army players have gone on to represent the Wallabies. In recent times, this list includes Wallaby #753 – Jim Williams 1999-2000, and Wallaby #770 – Justin Harrison 2001-05, of course, the most famous ex-Army Wallaby is #280 – Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop 1932-34.

The 2016 Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition will be conducted at Ballymore, Queensland between Monday 2 and Thursday 5 May 2016. The men’s and women’s squads for the Australian Army Rugby Union will be selected at the end of the Inter-Brigade Rugby Competition, and will represent the Army against Navy and Airforce at the ADF Championships.

If you are in Brisbane, and are looking to catch some top-shelf rugby, show your support for the Men and Women who serve our country.
