I think it was the RAF inter-services matches (or perhaps match) so not the Army v Navy. Thankfully, that 'spectacle' is reserved for Twickenham.

It’s a “long-term deal to host the Army v RAF fixtures”

5 year deal to host inter-service games. Think the RAF treat Kingsholm as their 'Home' game.

Suits me! :D

I can’t think of a better place for the Light Blue to call home; a perfect meeting of cherry, white and blue!

Well I hope there are plenty of 5 star hotels around because the RAF don’t do anything less than 5 star!!!!

The navy navigate by the stars, the army sleep under the stars and the RAF grade their accommodation when away from base by the number of stars!!!

Whoops! Sorry....seems sound in Stowford wasn’t as good as I thought or perhaps I’m just ‘cloth eared’!!

I sit towards the back in the Mira. I couldn't hear anything on the PA at half time and why do they insist on speaking in the bottom corner, come out on to the middle of the pitch and involve everyone.

Thanks for the confirmation. Would have been better if the whole stadium could have heard the announcement at the time it was made...

Back of the M Tyres Stand, towards the Kingshom Rd end and couldn't hear anything either.
