"The Rugby Union are pushing adult Rugby within Swaziland and with this in mind it was decided that Adult Tag Rugby Tournaments will be held on a regular basis to introduce the game of Rugby too adult who are interetsed in the sport. As you learn more about the game and gain confidence, it is hoped adults, both male and female will then make themove to full contact. But we at theRugby Union realise this move from Tag to contact can not be made overnight, hence this is why you are here today. Enjoy the Rugby experience and good luck to all of you" said Nkambule.
