Following another well attended Army Coaching Concentration on Tue 27 Jan 15, the squad went on to play the R Sigs (W) the following evening at Aldershot.  Whilst this was billed as a friendly encounter as the opposition had declared a scratch team for the season, the R Sigs (W) put up on an impressive display of running rugby in this game of Xs.  On what was a painfully cold evening, the sides were largely well matched, however the experience of Army capped RLC Players tipped the balance towards the end of the first half, with the squad Captain Sgt Joubert then Cpl Bani, running tries across the line.  Converting the tries eluded all those who attempted kicking for the posts. 

The score line increased in the second half, with the RLC exploiting gaps on the park leaving Cpl Steer and newcomer Pte Tuisabeto to stretch their legs to score another three tries.  Despite the skill and experience of the RLC Squad, the R Sigs (W) put in a determined effort and applied continuous pressure to the Loggies throughout.  The game certainly wasn’t a walkover and it certainly provided a great opportunity to play a hard game of rugby.
