Bangkok International Rugby Tens Rugby Tournament 2017

It’s time for the Bangkok International Rugby Tens again. On 25 and 26 February 2017, the 12th edition of the Tens will be held at the Sports Complex, Bangkok Patana School. And this year’s event is sure to be another exciting weekend full of fast-paced rugby games, socialising and family fun that will help support Nak Suu, a charity in Bangkok that provides disadvantaged children from the city’s slums with rugby training and valuable life skills.

Over the years, the Tens’s reach has expanded significantly and now attracts around 100 teams from all corners of the globe to Bangkok to play rugby. During the two days, teams compete at varying levels of competitiveness, starting at highly social and going all the way to highly competitive. International teams coming to Bangkok for this rugby tournament will include men’s, veteran men’s, boys’, ladies’ touch, ladies’ contact and ancients’ teams.

To keep with tradition, well-known rugby players have been invited to join the tournament. In the Tens’ 12th edition, they include former Springbok captain Bobby Skinstad, former Tongan captain now TV personality and commentator Willy Lose, South African commentator Dan Nicholl, former Wallaby player Warrick Waugh and former All Blacks player Frank Eneri Bunce. The Tens will also welcome Walter Little and Ofisa Junior Tunu’u from New Zealand, Matt Perry who plays for England and the Lions, Stephen Bachop who plays for New Zealand and Samoa, England players Dan Scarbrough and George Chuter, and Gavin Thomas from Wales. This year’s commentators will be Willy and Dan once again. As in previous years, the Rugby Asia Channel will cover the tournament for television and air on Setanta. The entire event can also be streamed live all over South East Asia.

With a welcoming, friendly atmosphere offering rugby and other fun activities for all age groups, the Tens are booked out every year. The parties, rides, games and activities for everyone, from child to adult, are something no rugby fan would want to miss.
