GAME CONFIRMED - Tuesday November 7th 2017

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

Going back to the first game in 2009 which was a draw, it was 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 last year they played some fantastic rugby and came away with a win 22 - 7 win. Last year's honours went to the 'Royal' in atrocious weather conditions!

As usual, the evening started with a youth match between Devonport Services and Ivybridge Under 16s. Services took the honours last year. A marching display for the audience of 1500 was provided by the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines and 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 this year's game.
