Twenty seven cadets (Including 4 from Windermere Squadron) and 6 members of staff from Cumbria and Lancashire Wing attended the Under 20 Rugby World Cup that was held in Manchester on the 25th June 2016.  Free tickets were obtained by our Sports Officer, WO (ATC) Nash, who also arranged transport to the venue.

A fantastic time was had by all and 3 top class international rugby matches were watched including the England vs. Ireland final, with England being crowned World Champions by 45 points to 21.  Cadets and staff all received a specially made T-Shirt and came away with other rugby souvenirs.
