Kingdom’s rugby ladies make splash in Bangkok

Kampuchea Balopp returned to Phnom Penh after coming third in the Bangkok International Rugby Tens tournament. The team, the first Cambodian side to play at this event, consists of players from Pour un Sourire d’Enfant and Sok Sabay Association.

It also boasts two expat players and is supported by rugby-promoting NGO Kampuchea Balopp.

The ladies put Cambodian women’s rugby on the regional map by finishing third in the five-team competition with two victories – a hard-fought 7-5 win over Kuala Lumpur Tigers and a 7-0 whitewash of the Bangkok Banger Belles, who KB also beat in the previous Sevens event.

The sponsors include Phoenix ASEAN Law Firm, IRCO Design & Consulting and Rugby Club Biel Bienne, who helped them participate in Thailand.
