Pakistan rugby making good progress


The Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens Invitation Tournament is one of the largest annual international rugby events and the two Pakistani teams’ inclusion in this prestigious tournament is a step forward. Lahore, who got invited to play in the International Open category where teams in this section are highly competitive, may found it hard to keep up with the teams but have gained good experience to bring back to the local circuit.
Islamabad, playing in the international social category, did well to reach the semi-final of the plate competition beating Tehran rugby club in the quarter finals on their way to the semi final where they lost to a more experienced Moscow Dragons Russian club side. The Pakistan clubs participation in international tournaments where they competed against some of the best players in the world will help raise the level of the game in Pakistan. Pakistan Rugby union President Fawzi Kawaja and Secretary Arif Saeed said he was happy that two of Pakistan best clubs played a prestigious tournament of the world.
