INJURIES to key players took its toll on the
Australian Services Rugby Union team when
it faced the British Army in the final of the
International Defence Rugby Competition
(IDRC) in New Zealand on October 22.
ASRU's best three defenders, including best
and fairest and players' player for the series, Pte
Ben Radmall, 9QR, Capt Ben Grumley, QUR,
and AB Daniel Robertson all suffered game-
ending injuries early in the first half, bringing
down its much vaunted defensive system and
resulting in a big loss to the BA, 62-17.
Coach Capt Damien Cahill said it was a dis-
appointing way to go out.
"The boys achieved a tremendous feat in
reaching the final, including victories over both
the third (Samoa) and fourth (Tonga) placed
teams, both of which had numerous internation-
als in their respective squads," Capt Cahill said.
"Unfortunately we started slowly, were deci-
mated by injury and ran into a red-hot BA side."
Despite not initially playing to the best of
its abilities throughout the tournament, the BA
fought back in the final proving the might and
capacity of its players.
Heineken Cup player Chris Budgen was
tremendous up front for the BA, as was the all-
international back row of Iremaia Boladau, Joe
Kava (Fiji) and Mark Lee (Scotland).
Capt Cahill said he couldn't fault the efforts
of his team, as reaching the final was a tremen-
"Saturday wasn't their day, but to be proved
to be the second best defence force rugby union
side in the world is something to be justifiably
proud of," he said.
"Especially as rugby union is so highly
regarded by the defence forces globally."
The team travelled to New Zealand for the
final, spending 10 days training and preparing
for the semi-final match against Samoa Police
and then the final against the British Army.
More than 1000 spectators made up of
mainly Polynesians supporting their teams in the
third-place play-off, took to the stands to watch
the final, keen to support the two teams.
Sgt Ben Jones said the IDRC was a great
concept and was only going to go from strength
"It would be great if the next competition
could be used as a curtain raiser to the official
world cup," Sgt Jones said.
"Hopefully next time around I'll be involved
Samoa Police beat Tonga Defence Services
22-17 in the playoff for third and fourth.
The success of the IDRC has largely come
from the vision and support of the CDF, with
ASRU's management team of Lt-Col Adam
Boyd, Flt-Lt Kris Scott and WO2 Matthew
Brooks providing immense support to the squad.
The next IDRC is scheduled to be held in
England in 2015.
