Project description

Brumbies Rugby have a deep connection with Japan and it's people. Every year our Super Rugby team plays against the Sunwolves in Tokyo and in 2018 we were invited to participate as the main event at the highly publicised Minato Rugby Festival in Tokyo. On the back of the relationships and footprint created in Japan the Brumbies are taking development officers over to Tokyo to run clinics in schools, build the relationship with japan and expand the game.
