Pattaya Rugby Festival to be held next weekend

The Pattaya 10's Rugby Tournament is now 10 years old and the 10th anniversary of the event, now known as the Chris Kays Memorial Tournament, will take place from May 1-2. The tournament was renamed in memory of the former Pattaya Panthers captain, who was tragically killed in the Bali bombing in October 2002.

Once again the tournament will be staged at the Horseshoe Point Resort.

There will be a 10s tournament for men and the Junior Division (U-18), which was a success last year, will again feature schools from the provinces and will be expanded to further help the Thailand Rugby Union's development of the game.

There will be 16 teams in the main competition and there will be a very strong local influence with former champions the Southerners and the Old Bangkok Bangers and their Colts as well as crowd favourites the Bangkok Japanese.

Action begins at 9.30am on May 1 and concludes around 5pm on May 2.
