The newly crowned International Defence Rugby Championship winners - the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

The Republic of Fiji Military Forces Fiji have been crowned champions of the International Defence Rugby Competition 2015 at the Twickenham Stoop.

They blew away defending champions British Army 30-10.

This is the first time RFMF has taken part in such a prestigious tournament and Land Force Commander Colonel Sitiveni Qiliho said their win was well deserved.

“The British team was lucky to score a consolation try at the end –  otherwise they would have gone without the try,” Colonel Qiliho said.

“After the disappointing loss to the Police in the Ratu Sukuna Bowl, the RFMF team has done itself proud by defeating all the bigger militaries from renowned rugby nations.”
