Every year the Army v Navy rugby match creates as competitive an atmosphere of as any encounter at Twickenham.

Since 1878 the Army and Royal Navy have competed for service rugby supremacy, and from 1920 the battle ground has been Twickenham Stadium.

In last year's thriller, the British Army triumphed with a gutsy second half performance. They will be keen to retain their new silverware, while the Navy will be desperate to get back to their winning ways. With both teams determined to out-do each other in front of 60,000 spectators, Twickenham on 28 April 28, 2012 promises to deliver an explosion of raw passion in the battle for the Babcock Trophy.
