Army Winners On Parade

2nd February 2005

Sergeant Major Mark Bevan of the Queens Dragoon Guards and Sergeant Major Terry Robst of the Royal Regiment were at Cardiff Arms park last Friday to present prizes to the winners of the Army competitions which took place at the Blues v Gloucester Heineken Cup match in December.

The competitions involved a customized Army Climbing and assault cause which was set up to test the skills of the junior Blues…and the junior Blues didn’t fail to deliver! They turned out in their droves to test their hand on the standard Army equipment and impressed the soldiers on duty.

Sgt Major Terry Robst said, “We were all taken aback, firstly by the amount of children who were willing to give the climbing wall and assault course a go, and secondly by the how well the junior Blues got to grips with it!”

At the end of the day there could only be three winners and they were duly presented with their prizes at the Blues clash with Edinburgh last Friday. Paul Nash won a Camelpak Hydration System which, is used by the Army when operating in warm climates, and was presented with it before the match. Jason Ferriera and Sarah Edwards were presented with their prizes, a Cardiff Blues leisure shirt and an official Army mountain bike.

Assisting Terry Robst and Mark Bevan with the presentations were Blues and Wales flyer Rhys Williams, Blues veteran Andrew Lewis and last but not least, Arms Park crowd favourite, Bruiser!
