As many of the regular teams have aged, the organisers have introduced the One Foot in the Grave tournament for the over 45s so they can continue playing in the tournament and enjoying the rugby with their silky skills and never say die attitudes.

Saturday May 26 will see the start of the main tournament with 16 teams battling it out in the men’s division for the Maria Memorial Trophy and four ladies teams bringing some hard hitting action and a touch of glamour to the event.

Reigning champions The Phuket Vagabonds are hoping to go back-to-back and again take the honours come the finals next Sunday (May 27).

There will be some tough opposition again this year with last year’s runners-up the Asian Japanese Dragons aiming to go a step further.

The Bedok Kings, Old Man Mix, Beaver Nomads, Naughty Nuris Vagabonds, Prince of Songkla Rugby, Pattaya Panthers, Melanins RFC and the Singapore Wanderers will all have a say in the outcome come Sundays finals.
