On this week’s RFU Podcast we hear from the armed services as they prepare to take over Twickenham this weekend for the annual Army v Navy clash.

In front of a sell-out crowd, Army captain Lance Sergeant Matthew Dwyer says that he can’t wait for it. “I’m trying to keep my feet on the ground,” he said. “But we’re all pretty excited. It’ll be the highlight of my life to be honest – minus the birth of my two kids – I couldn’t have asked for anything better, it’ll be a great occasion.”

From the Navy, Dave Pascoe captains the side for the ninth successive year and he says that it’s tough to prepare for such as big game, but is “expecting another tough game”.
