Asia Rugby U20 Sevens Series Tournament

Societe Generale India Women’s Rugby Team shines at the Asia Rugby U20 Sevens Series Tournament

It was a boiling hot weekend on 4th & 5th August in Hong Kong where teenage rugby players from seven locations across Asia including China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Uzbekistan, fought for top honors at the Asia Rugby U20 Sevens Series. Among them was Societe Generale Indian Women’s Rugby team who made all the way to Hong Kong for this.

Being their first international tournament, the matches gave the team great exposure and experience as a warm-up to compete at the 2018 Asian Games.

The girls did make every moment count in Hong Kong. Arriving only a day before the tournament, the team underwent training right after landing to get used to the Hong Kong weather.

 

The team gave their best during the tournament, with tough games against players from other countries. Ranked at number 4, after defeating Singapore, Malaysia and Uzbekistan, we are extremely proud of the girls’ performance as this exposure is part of our journey to strengthen women’s rugby in India.

 

Our involvement in this tournament reinforces a longstanding commitment to rugby and our forward-looking ambition to be a supporter of all forms of rugby, all around the world. Rugby embodies values that are rooted in Societe Generale's DNA: team spirit and commitment, and also the will to surpass oneself and to collectively make the difference.
