Bangkok International Rugby Tens set to be biggest ever

The Raimon Land Bangkok International Rugby Tens 2008 has placed Bangkok at the centre of Southeast Asian rugby, as it continues to attract unprecedented levels of interest.
With 24 teams competing this coming weekend, from as far a field as South Africa, Australia and Canada, turnout is expected to be the highest ever in the competition’s three year history. The tournament takes place on 23-24 February at Bangkok Pattana School.

The Raimon Land Bangkok International Rugby Tens 2008 takes place at Bangkok Pattana School over the weekend 23-24 February.

Key personalities include ex-internationals South Africans Bobby Skinstad and Robbie Fleck, Australians Warwick Waugh and David Fitter, plus tournament friend Tongan Willie Lose.
Raimon Land has sponsored the event since its 2006 inception as part of the company’s drive to make Thailand the region’s key sporting destination.
Raimon Land’s Chief Executive Officer Mr Nigel Cornick said: “Raimon Land continues its commitment to promoting worthwhile sporting endeavours through the sponsorship of the Bangkok International Rubgy Tens.
“As Southeast Asia’s number-one rugby event it demonstrates that Thailand is not only a fantastic lifestyle sports destination, but that the Kingdom provides a platform for developing key youth sport programmes as well.”
The Bangkok Tens also focuses on the development of youth rugby in the region, and expects to top last years turnout of 500-plus competitors at the junior competition.
Event Founder and Chairman of the Bangkok Ten’s committee, Mr. Eddie Evans added the tournament had grown incredibly because its offers a structured and organised platform that showcases rugby from all over the globe.
“With the added benefit of attracting ex-internationals, this has resulted in further wide exposure for the tournament, not only in Thailand, but around the world. We are indebted to Raimon Land for its support in developing this event.”


Citylife scrape home in thriller at the Prem

Chiang Mai cricket news

Graeme Monaghan
Citylife v UN Irish Pub, Sunday, February 10
In a match of see-sawing fortunes, City Life scrambled home against the Irish Pub at Prem Centre a week last Sunday to win with two wickets in hand.
Batting first the Irish Pub put together a modest 125 for 9 with only Mango putting up any genuine resistance with a hard-hitting 23. Pick of the bowlers were Nick Hanlon who bowled his steady leg-breaks to collect 3 wickets for 23 from his six overs, and Noor who chipped in with two wickets for no runs in his only over to round off the innings. Worthy of note was Niew’s performance with one wicket for 35 from his six, fairly accurate overs and some fine fielding. He gets better with each match.
A minor highlight was the catch by Graeme at first slip that rebounded from the hands of George at second to put an end to a troublesome, and unfortunate, Jigme.
Early wickets saw City Life in trouble with the loss of George, Chris Coombs and Makki with only 33 on the board. A steady 50 from Graeme supported by Off with 22 took the score over 100 without further loss and a comfortable win seemed assured. Then, within the space of 15 runs four wickets fell in what was a mini collapse. However, Dean managed to hold things together for the remaining few runs required.
The outstanding bowler for the Irish Pub was clearly Asif, who bowled with accuracy and deviation to finish with the remarkable figures of 6 for 14.
