Pakistan women create history

Pakistan women team will create history by playing it its first ever international appearance in the Asia Rugby Sevens Trophy 2017 at Vientiane Laos from February 14.

"It will be a great honour for the country to see its women team creating history by making its mark at the international level, which indicates that Pakistan Rugby Union (PRU) has been striving for the cause of rugby in Pakistan,” said Rugby Services manager Syed Moazzam Ali Shah.

He said in order to prepare the team, the national camp had been in progress at Pakistan Rugby Academy since last month and girls belonging to different parts of the country are taught the finer points from PRU head coach Shakeel Ahmed.
