Regretfully, we have had to take the decision to cancel this year's game and we thank you all for your interest and support.

The better news is that we have secured the date for 2021 so put November 9th in your diary!


Even though there'll be no event this year, there are many who would benefit from your support, even during these difficult times.

The Medics Rugby Challenge team is still active and looking at new ways to fundraise for the RMA - Royal Marines Charity and we need you help and continued support more than ever.

Huge thanks from all of us!



Gates open at 16:30
Under 16s match 17:30



2019 was the eleventh Medics Rugby Challenge and hosted by Plymouth Albion and supported by the team at 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. 'Royal' have really had the upper hand since then, in so far as wins, but the Medics have never given up despite the size and age disadvantage.

As usual, the evening will start with a youth match between Devonport Services and Ivybridge Under 16s (1730). A marching display will follow by the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines (1840) before a minutes silence, in memory of those who have given their lives in the service of their country. The main game kick off at 1930.

An auction which follows the game and raises an incredible amount 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 3rd November 2020 in your diary and we hope to see you at this year's game.
