ANZ Royal Angkor 10s hits the field at Northbridge

The day-long ANZ Royal Angkor 10s annual rugby competition goes on stage at the Northbridge School grounds tomorrow, also marking the introduction of a women’s 10s event for the first time in Cambodia. A perfect dress rehearsal is also on the anvil in the form of the Old Boys tournament for over 35-year-olds today. “An exciting weekend of top flight rugby and entertainment is ahead of us,” tournament director James Sterling told the Post yesterday. There is a slight change in the original scheduling of tomorrow’s matches. “Due to issues of light, we will now start a bit earlier and complete the event by about 5:30pm,” added Sterling. Apart from bouncy castles, face painting and fun-filled games for the spectators, the Cambodian Rugby Federation will organise a raffle offering special prizes tomorrow to raise funds for its developmental activities.
