“Last year, we had four foreign teams from in attendance for the tournament but this year we are looking at expanding to 5 to 6 teams,” he said.
The annual 2 day rugby festival which started in 2009 will be held between October 10 and 11 at the Onikan Stadium in Lagos.
He concluded that this is just one of the programmes endorsed by the Sir Edward Pam’s led board of the NRFF to expose clubs and national team players to the current global trends in the sport.
