​South Africa – Monaco Rugby Exchange – 6-14.07.2016



As part of the "South Africa – Monaco Rugby Exchange", 16 youths from the Monegasque Rugby Federation (U16 team) travelled to South Africa from 6 to 14 July 2016.

The nine days were intense and involved discovering the country as well as participating in sports activities.  This included the Vuka 7's Tournament in City Park located in Cape Town on Sunday, 10 July 2016.

Aside from the competition - Monaco came in third place - it was a positive experience based on sharing knowledge and rugby practices.  The passion and crucial values that sport convey was prominent:  team spirit, determination, discipline and respect for others.

This visit is one that will remain unforgettable for all who took part thanks to the South African Rugby Legends Association.
