ugby comes to town this Saturday at the Olympic Stadium - though purists of the

game may well turn in their graves.

The Indochine Rugby Cup pits the best and bravest of women's rugby in Asia against

one another. Phnom Penh will host the cup this year, currently in its fifth year.

Expatriates from France, England, Australia and New Zealand have organized matches

between teams from Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Phnom Penh will be represented by "Les Piliers d'Angkor", lined up at right,

who have encouraged the sport among a number of local schools.

Also up for grabs is the title of Miss Phnom Penh Rugby 2000. The final will kick-off

at 2pm.
