If rugby holds a significant place in your heart and you are game for a fabulous meal, then the place to be this Saturday is NagaWorld where the Cambodian Rugby Federation is throwing a gala dinner to raise funds for the promotion and growth of the sport in the Kingdom.

The black tie fundraiser, priced at US$95 per person, includes a five course meal, free flowing drinks, a rugby auction and a raffle. Injecting some competitive action into proceedings will be a rugby simulator to test your ball skills.

A trio of rugby greats have been booked as guest speakers, including former Singapore national team coach Justin Sampson, former Australian international Owen Finegan and former Welsh international Scott Quinnell.

Cambodian Rugby Federation Secretary General Thomas Sterling told the post yesterday that the capital accrued at the function will help run many of their calendar events, as well as contributing towards rental of pitches.

“It will help us a great deal with the forthcoming Mekong Cup in July involving Cambodia and Laos. We are flying in two instructors from Hong Kong to train our referees,” said Sterling.

The CFR’s blue ribband event, the 2011 Angkor 10s, is slated for November 5, a day after the first Women’s Angkor 10s tournament and the Old Boys Angkor 10s.

The Federation is also yet finalise the dates for the 2011 Angkor 7s which is to be played under a new format for the first time in Cambodia.

The gala dinner begins at 6:30pm on Saturday. For more information log on to www.cambodiarugby.net.
