Rugby school to hold March 6 ceremony in celebration

ASPECA Rugby Club, home of one of the Cambodian Federation of Rugby’s largest youth-training programs, is organising a ceremony on March 6 to help celebrate its continued growth, including the current involvement of almost 100 orphaned children.

The date is also the “common birthday” of the kids at the Phnom Penh orphanage. Organisers will use the occasion to bring the rugby community together and share a fun and friendly moment.

Cambodian Federation of Rugby president Than Theany will give a speech and some ASPECA youngsters will perform “The Dance of Rugby Players”.

ASPECA Rugby Club, which was founded in 2008, is funded through the sale of shirts as well as private sponsors in France.
