RFC away match with Sandhurst

Thu 30 November 2017

RFC fencers travelled to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) yesterday, for a friendly club match hosted by RMAS, in their iconic Old College building. This match was arranged for intermediate level fencers, four of whom had only completed a recent beginner course, with the RFC teams made up of: RFC ‘A’ – Lewie Jackson, Andy Smith and Beau Rahim. RFC ‘B’ – Rathish Punneli, Munawar Karim and Stanley Louw. Overall, the RFC teams won one out of the four matches, but gained valuable experience from the fencing. RFC ‘A’ beat RMAS ‘B’ 45-40, but lost to RMAS ‘A’ 45-23. RFC ‘B’ lost to RMAS ‘A’ 45-18 and to RMAS ‘B’ 45-37. A return match will be hosted by RFC in due course, with additional matches against other local clubs also planned for 2018.
