Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Attend training sessions for your establishment, if your coach thinks you are good enough he will recommend you try out for your area command side. If you are successful there then if that coach thinks you are good enough or if you get spotted by a navy coach you will be called into the squad. How good are you though? For the full navy squad we are talking about a high playing standard.

    Very predictable response! Dare you to say that to any of the players. :wink: Our side isn't bad (we regularly trounce the crabs) it's just that the army's is better. But having a player base four times the size of ours and half of the young male population of Fiji to choose from is bound to give them something of an advantage.

    What's all that about?
     
  18. Ha yes, it wasn't Army/Navy really, it was Navy vs Fiji
     
  19. Not forgetting the Worcester first-teamer alongside the three Fijian internationals.
