The Journey to the World Cup Continues

Travel to Rwanda to train with and play a match against the Rwandan Silverbacks. Conduct coaching sessions with, and run a tournament for school teams.


Thu, 05/21/2020 to Sun, 05/31/2020



FoRR works to support the development of rugby as a socially inclusive and unifying sport. By supporting the development of the sport at all levels and from all standpoints - playing, coaching, refereeing, administration - we help to create a self-sustaining infrastructure that can provide much wider engagement and benefit than we could by ourselves.  

This trip will include a mixture of training with the Silverbacks (building on Friends of Rwandan Rugby's earlier visits) and coaching in local schools and will therefore be supporting engagement and development at both the grass roots and elite levels. This trip will include a schools tournament and culminate in a practice match between the UK volunteers and the Silverbacks. A playing squad sized party of players is therefore required. Applicants should be experienced players, conditioned to training in a full contact environment.
