RESPECT tournament opens rugby season

The Cambodian Federation of Rugby (CFR) will hold its respect – Good Men in Rugby tournament for children and students tomorrow at the Old Stadium. The goal of the event is to make a contribution to end violence against women by promoting gender equitable behaviour among men.

Registration for teams will start at 10 am, with games running from 10:30 am until 2:15 pm.

Participants will also have the chance to learn about the CFR’s respect program.

The competition will be followed by the opening league match of the CFR 2012-13 rugby season between defending champions the Sisowath Knights and Stade Khmer.

CFR Development Officer Dan Wetherall told the Post: “[The] two teams have been traditionally strong rivals on the field but hold healthy respect for each other off it, and will embrace the spirit of rugby and the Good Men campaign.

It will be a great way for our Grassroots development sides to learn about rugby and understand how the game is played.”
