The Royal Navy first 'Inter Service' rugby match was against the RAF in 2002.  The RAF who had played the Army the year before, won this match by an unknown score.  The following year saw the dawn of the Women's Inter Service Championship to run alongside the Men's Championship.  The first ever win for the Royal Navy in this new competition was in 2005.  In 2014 the RN Women beat the RAF Women 17-6, this was not only their highest score in the competition but also levelled the series with the RAF at 6 wins each . . .
