As rugby enthusiasts all over the world look forward to this weekend’s big games in the 6 Nations, the University students of Lebanon prepare for their own Championship. With just as much rivalry and an increasingly high standard the University 7s Championship will pit students from Universities across the country against each other in a daylong event to see who will come out on top.
Last year’s winners “The Saints”, comprised of students from USJ, will be firm favorites going into this year’s first round. However, with new teams from NDU, Tripoli and new club “The Gaurs”, competition is set to be fierce. This will be the Gaurs first rugby tournament and the team is relishing the opportunity to take to the field.
The tournament will take place in Sin el Fil, on grass instead of Astroturf. With the weather improving from last week’s storms, the conditions seem just right for some top quality rugby. This will be the first round of what will be a three round tournament, with a round at the start of every month, and then a final after these rounds in the summer.
