Gloucester Rugby back row forward Apo Satala has been named in the Army side for their annual clash with the Navy at Twickenham on Saturday May 2nd.
Apo, a Private in the Royal regiment of Scotland, has been a been a big part of Army Rugby over the past few seasons and was a member of the Army winning teams at the Middlesex 7s in both 2001 and 2004.
Although he had previous experience with Leeds, Satala caught Gloucester's eye playing for the British Army in the Middlesex Sevens in the summer and immediately joined the club on trial.
He impressed so much, Head Coach Dean Ryan signed the explosive back rower until the end of the season and Satala caught the eye instantly thanks to his ball carrying qualities and destructive tackling.
He went on to make 22 appearances for Gloucester this season and scored two tries.
