Balopp line out feast of rugby action

Entertaining and competitive rugby with a social bent is what the two-day Cambodia 10s tournament organised by Kampuchea Balopp will dish out this week end at the Navy sports ground situated on the Chroy Changvar peninsula.

Guest teams from Australia, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Myanmar will join local outfits in two separate events.

The field for the men’s competition will be 12-strong.

A four-team mixed touch rugby tournament will run concurrently. An U15s exhibition match between two of Kampuchea Balopp’s partners, Krousar Thmey and Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE), will held at 12:30pm on Sunday.

The men’s event will consist of pool games up until mid-afternoon tomorrow with the final posted for Sunday.

For the benefit of the players and fans, the 2015 Rugby World Cup final on Saturday between New Zealand and Australia at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham, will be shown live at the Exchange from 9:30pm.

Entry for spectators on both days is free.
