Rivals fail to part
IN WHAT was considered to be one of
the best finals in recent memory, Army
put paid to a spirited challenge by Navy
to hold the Wg-Cmdr John Caldwell
Shield, winning 29-13.
Speaking after the match CDF ACM
Angus Houston said it was an exhibition
of how the game should be played.
"What we saw today was absolutely
magnificent, very closely contested, very
hard fought and all the players on the
field did the game and their respective
services proud," he said.
The game started dramatically with
Navy surprising from the kick-off, and
Smn Daryl Seden crossing out wide less
than two minutes into the game.
Navy then had Army under the pump
until a turnover and the quick thinking
of Army fly-half Sgt Ben Jones put Pte
Elliot Hagen away for an 80m try against
the run of play.
The same combination double tapped
from a lineout shortly after to take the
score out to 12-5, setting the platform for
the Army win.
From there the game settled into an
arm wrestle with the better structure of
the Navy forwards bringing prolonged
pressure to bear on the Army defence.
But, Army's defence cracked when the
ball was spread to the blind side for Smn
Seden to cross for his second.
Winger Pte Joven Clarke looked dan-
gerous every time he had the ball and five
minutes before half-time he crossed to
give Army a handy 17-10 lead going into
Navy converted a penalty early in the
second half to bring the difference back
to four but when Pte Hagen crossed for
his hat-trick, the Cpl Craig Rogerson con-
version pushed the score out to 24-13.
From there the Navy team was playing
catch-up and, although they seemed to
have the better forwards in general play,
silly penalties, turnovers and poor lineout
play proved costly.
With eight minutes to go, Navy con-
ceded a penalty for holding and from
the subsequent play, Pte Luke Tabutoa
crossed for a deserved try to clinch the
Army coach Capt Angus Baker said
it was a tough game but his boys gave as
good as they got.
"We won it with our scrum because
we tired their forwards out; we upped the
pace in the second half and tested their
fitness," he said.
"Full credit to Navy for a great game;
they stuck it to us and we were a bit
Navy coach CPO Tony Doherty said
he was proud of the effort of his team.
"The boys stuck to their guns for the
full 80 minutes and that's all you can ask
as coach," he said.
"We are in a building phase so we
will take this and work towards the game
against the French in July; next year we
will come back and change the result."
Army number 8 LCpl Adrian Sutter
was named man-of-the-match with strong
performances from wingers, Pte Hagen
and Pte Clarke, and halves Pte Tabutoa
and Sgt Jones. Pte Ben Radmall won the
tournament rookie award.
Army players selected in the ASRU 2010 squad to
play the US from July 17-31 are: Pte Joven Clark,
Cpl Craig Rogerson, Capt Gerard Kearns, Capt
Matt Huggins, Capt Dave Jensen, L-Cpl Adrian
Sutter, Pte Ben Radmall, Pte Heath Toon, Pte Elliot
Hagan, Lt Peter Mueller and Pte Josh Gray.
Fitness pays off

Army proved its domination of rugby when it won
both the men's and women's titles at Viking Park
in Canberra. Lt Bill Heck reports on the matches.
