Brunei will be hosting the Asia Rugby Championship on 8th, 10th and 12th of May 2018. Teams that will be participating are Brunei as host, Guam and China. This will be the 6th Asia Rugby Tournament that Brunei has hosted since 2007, and the last one was against Mongolia and Laos in 2014, where Mongolia emerge as champion for this division.
Brunei Rugby is hoping to make this event an annual event, as it will be a holistic approach to promote rugby in the country, by having such regional marquee rugby event to the sultanate. We are also hoping to organize a Asian 7s tournament and Asian age group tournament in the near future.
The organisers would like to thank our partners & sponsors Ministry of youth and sports, RYS entertainment, Head Hunter sport, Asia Rugby, Rhino, Asian Flair, Youc1000 Isotonic drink and Rainfresh water for the support in this tournament.
Brunei Rugby will also be organizing Level 1 Medic First Aid in Rugby (L1FAIR) course during the tournament. It will be conducted by Dr Azril Syazwan bin Mohd Ali, a World Rugby Medical Educator, from Malaysia’s Institute of Sports. Brunei Rugby not only hope to produce rugby players, coaches, referees and administrators, but also medical professionals to become more professional in their approach to promote Rugby.
