India’s U-18 girls team won the silver medal after losing to UAE 26-5 in the final at the recently concluded Asia Rugby Sevens.

“It’s been a gratifying and rewarding 12 months for Rugby India. We now have gained silver in the u18s at the end of 2021, silver in the u20 this in Uzbekistan, silver in the women’s this year in Jakarta and now with this silver it makes us 4 silvers in a row,” said Rahul Bose, president, Rugby India.

“There is a clear 3-tiered structure for the women to move into the top rung into the future. The U18 boys have gotten the 4th place which mirrors the 4th place the U20 boys also got. It’s a solid start for them to work upward to the top 3. We have work to do in the men’s but this tournament is a lovely way to round up our ambitions and intentions for the 21-22 season. We can safely say, mission accomplished and lots to do in future. Lastly, thank you to Nepal Rugby for hosting us with wonderful facilities and excellent warmth and hospitality and Asia Rugby for inviting India to participate.”
