“We are now playing Inter-district tournament every month for last Sunday, every month. And we’ll be playing that around Belize around the districts. The weekend, the tournament we got this weekend in Belize City at the MCC and kickoffs at 11 o’clock.

“We are an organization set up with former internationals players from around the world who, um, had, an idea and inspiration to give back to the sport, which has given us so much. And, what that means is working with different charities, going to different countries around the world, given the rugby, you know, trying to grow the game of rugby from grassroots in particular, where we can. A lot of, experience and hopefully name and experienced and hopefully that can bring some financial help towards different organization, charities, all in the name of giving back to two communities and giving back through the sport.”
