PSE top in tag rugby tourney

Rugby-promoting NGO Kampuchea Ballop organised Cambodia’s first inclusive and international tag rugby tournament at the BKK Field on Saturday, with the victory going to one of its partner organisations, PSE.

As many as eight teams, including two comprised of hearing-impaired players from the Hong Kong Rugby Union and the other six trained by Kampuchea Ballop took part in the day-long event.

In the final, underdogs PSE started strongly against favourites Aspeca, who despite staging a comeback in a tense encounter went down 4-3.

Visiting HKRFU coach Stuart Gunn expressed the hope that the Cambodian grassroots would continue to grow and that his side would get another chance to visit the country again.

Local team Krousar Thmey received a set of new balls from the Hong Kong group, made possible by HK club side Sai King Stingrays, who contributed dozens of balls, kit, pumps and more to Kampuchea Ballop.
