The Bangkok 10s 2023 organisers have confirmed the tournament will once again feature a number of contact and mixed touch rugby divisions when it takes place at the Patana School in Bangkok from 25-26 February 2023.
Eddie Evans, the former Canadian international player and founder/organiser said the initial interest has been overwhelming and it is going to be a sell-out.
The tournament was cancelled for the past two years due to the pandemic.
