Rugby is booming and the growth in Asian rugby has been phenomenal to watch over the years. From the increasing levels of professionalism at the top level and a burgeoning grassroots platform led by countless individuals and small organizations across the continent who are spreading their love of the game.
There is a boom in social rugby and an increasing number of teams for men and women (not forgetting Vets and youth rugby) as well as tournaments in most major cities helping to bridge the rugby community within Asia and beyond.
What we found was lacking, is a one-stop resource which covers everything in Asian rugby, from news, tournaments, interviews with the movers and shakers and grassroots drivers. Instead of complaining about the lack of professional media covering Asian rugby, we opted to fill the void.
So please help support us and share your rugby news, tournaments and information for all rugby lovers in Asia, and the world to enjoy.
We are a small dedicated team of professionals working in media who love the game of rugby and everything it should represent.
