Meet Kurdistan’s First Rugby Team
Dubai Rugby 7s witnessed the comeback for Kurdistan’s only Rugby team, who are finally starting to show some real signs of strong Kurdish spirit. Made up of Irregular players from Iraq and Kurdistan, the team’s take on the game was met with a wide reception amongst the Kurdish community.
Today, Rugby is on Kurdistan’s mind as a passion that is starting to turn the minds of the young people of Kurdistan.
One of the coaches of the Kurdish Rugby team had this to say:
Yea, certainly. In my limited time in Kurdistan – more recently, there is a lot of skill, a lot of determination, a lot of fitness. And a lot of the guys are really keen to play rugby, he said
Their win against the JC Oldboys in the Rugby 7s was not easy, but it was welcomed with a lot of love from the Kurdish community, who seem to grow more and more interested in Rugby every day. The bets are all off on whether Kurdistan’s first rugby team will continue their victories. However, the future is bright for the youthful ones and here at Koracasino we are looking forward to follow their progression.
