*We apologise for any incorrect information, it is our best assumption based on what the Clubs have announced in English.
The Thai Rugby Union has quite a poor reputation for releasing schedules and then changing them at short notice in recent years.
In addition, the local Thailand referees also face alleged accusations of bias within the league and rugby tournaments in Thailand against foreign teams and players.
Thai National Rugby team
The Thailand national men’s 15s team competed in the Asia Rugby Championships Division 2 in May against UAE, Kazakhstan and Guam. They lost to UAE but beat Kazakhstan to remain in Division 2 in 2020.
