The Australian Army Rugby Old Boys (Leopards) have returned from a successful tour of Turkey, of which Sea Box International was proud to be a gold sponsor.
To mark the centenary of ANZAC, the Leopards travelled to Canakkale (Gallipoli) to play a friendly match against the oldest rugby club in Turkey, the Istanbul Ottomans. This game holds a special place within the Australian Army and Old Boys as the first ever game of rugby in Turkey was by Australian soldiers at Gallipoli. It has also been estimated that approximately 5,000 Australian rugby players ultimately went on active war service between 1914 and 1918. Read more about their historic tour.
