By BBN Staff: In March last year, the first ever event for the sport Rugby was held in Orange Walk Town and was organized with the assistance of Belize City’s Community Policing Unit, as well as a Rugby Intern from a university in the United States.
The objective was to introduce this sport to youths since it is relatively new to our country, although it is played professionally across the Caribbean, Central America, and the rest of the world.
Tony Gillings is the founder of the Belize Rugby Board (BRB).
Rugby is a free-flowing game that features a combination of strength, speed and strategy to move a ball into an opponents territory. Rugby is a full-contact sport yet players wear little-or no protective gear. Rugby evolved from football (i.e. soccer) and is often called the game played in heaven.
This year, the BRB announced the historic first ever rugby 7s game, hosted by the Kolbe Foundation at the Belize Central Prison.
The event kicks off this Saturday, July 22 with Kings Park RFC vs Yarborough RFC.
The squads are being sponsored by Chon Saan Palace and Wrobel& Co.
Congratulations to all the teams!
