This fixture not only gives opportunities for those involved to play competitively but also an opportunity for showcase Navy sport for both HMS Collingwood and HMS Sultan’s newest sailors.

Taking full advantage of home turf, HMS Collingwood won the football, rugby, superteams and assault course events with the hockey clash ending in a draw. HMS Sultan triumphed in the Female Tag Rugby event.

The Commanding Officer of HMS Collingwood, Captain Rob Vitali RN, presented the trophy to the proud team and a welcome hot meal at the end of the contest rewarded winners and the defeated alike giving rivals the chance to socialise and compare notes on their performances.

Leading Physical Trainer (LPT) Sam Howard who helped organise the event said afterwards, “This fixture not only gives opportunities for those involved to play competitively but also an opportunity for showcase Navy sport for both HMS Collingwood and HMS Sultan’s newest sailors.

"Since the fixture, HMS Collingwood has seen a huge increase in training sessions put on in the evenings. Many of the recruits are now seeing how our core values are used within sport.”
