Australian Services Rugby Union continued their 2015 IDRC campaign with a comprehensive win over Canadian Armed Forces, flogging the northerners 145 – 7.
In the mean time, the French National Military upset the British Army 24 – 23 – a result that puts Australia into the quarter finals in eighth position, where they will meet Republic of Fiji Military Force at Portsmouth today, Monday 19 October 2015.
Twelve teams from ten nations are participating in the IDRC – British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, French Armed Forces, Georgian Armed Forces, Canadian Armed Forces, Japan Self Defense Force, South African National Defence Force, Republic of Fiji Military Forces, His Majesty’s Armed Forces (Tonga), New Zealand Defence Force, and ASRU.
ASRU’s campaign got off to a rocky start, going down badly to the British Army 62-0 in the opening game.
