SIZE definitely mattered as the
tall timber of Army's men's and
mixed sides secured victories at
the ADF Netball Interservice and
Combined Championships at RAAF
Base Amberley from October 28 to
Navy and Air Force had no answer for
the height and strength of the Army team
in the mixed competition, while the men's
side had to battle all the way to secure a
one-goal victory to be the superior service
in the men's competition.
Army was unlucky in the women's
tournament after a draw with Navy and a
close loss to Air Force, where Army play-
ers struggled to convert superior posses-
sion into goals.
The Army mixed side, however, was
able to dominate in attack, thanks to the
towering Pte Zach Vey-Johnson, of 1 Regt
RAA, and Cpl Matthew Rugendyke, of 5
Avn Regt, anchored in goals.
The defence end was not to be outdone,
with Capt Jarrod Anderson, 5 Avn Regt,
picking off intercept after intercept as a
reward for the team's defensive pressure.
The men's action was much closer,
with just one goal separating Army and
Air Force, where their first match proved
to be the game of the tournament.
Both teams had opportunities to pull
away, but the more fancied Air Force was
taken aback by the fluid teamwork of

slick skills in a game riddled with errors,

Warriors' clean sweep
ARMY'S Capt Sally Carter, Lt Alisha Hewett and
Pte Brea Grant posted tries to lift the Australian
Services Rugby Union Women to a hard-fought
24-12 victory over the British Combined Services
Women in a Remembrance Day test match.
The triumph enabled the ASRU Warriors
to complete a grand slam of wins against the
RAF Women, Royal Navy Women, the British
Army Women and, finally, the British Combined
The test triumph at Caerphilly RFC on
November 7 brought down the curtain on ASRU's
highly successful tour of the UK, in which they
won all four matches.
Team manager Leut Rosie Apikotoa said team
captain Capt Sally Carter, of 6 Avn Regt, was
voted best forward during the 21-day tour.
"Capt Carter led her side from the front and
was well supported by the other Army girls in
the team including Capt Caroline Vakalahi, who
paved the way for victory," she said.
The British women opened the scoring with a
converted try, but the Warriors hit back through
flanker Cpl Rebekah Allen, of Air Force, who
posted an important five-pointer that was convert-
ed by Pte Hayley Sullivan, of 1 Joint Movt Gp.
Capt Carter followed up by barging over three
defenders to give the Warriors a handy 12-7 lead
The second stanza was similar to the first,
with the British women posting another converted
try before outside-centre Lt Alisha Hewett, of
8CHC, scored to give the Warriors a handy 17-12
lead with 15 minutes remaining.
From the restart, the Warriors' halves, PO
Nicole Palmer and Cpl Fasheena Nevell, of
1RTB, moved the ball to winger Pte Brea Grant,
of 1CSSB, who raced 50m to score a slick try.
Fullback Pte Hayley Sullivan, of 1 Joint Movt
Gp, converted for a 24-12 scoreline with 12
minutes to play.
The British Combined Services threw caution
to the wind in an effort to score more points, but
the ASRU defence held firm to record a well-
The clean sweep included a 52-0 thumping of
the RAF, a 100-0 thrashing of the RN and a hard
fought 13-10 triumph over the British Army.
A total of 13 Army women played in the
ASRU Warriors team, including Capt Caroline
Vakalahi, Lt Stacey Eason, OCdt Sharyn Laws,
Cpl Emma-Lee Wood, Cpl Bridget Beatson,
Cpl Stacey Bolton, Lt Melissa Thompson, Pte
Hayley Sullivan and OCdt Eleanor Tegg.
Four from four: The ASRU Warriors show their jubilation after a clean sweep of four victories from the
successful tour to the UK.
