About the significance and goals of this tournament
From getting the torch to carry on this tournament, our main goal and aim has to think how to promote the founding values of rugby. To put aside pros or amateurs to the game, but look to the future players, and see what is important and what needs to be passed on to help make this game even bigger and better.
That is to say, that it is DIVERSITY that makes this game one of, if not THE best game in the world. It is a game that helps build spirit, brings people together and helps relationships grow!
The WURIT is a great chance for players that are just starting out their career or those that are already on the way to being pros to get together and discover or rediscover these pure values.
By taking these values, and using them not just in the future matches but their own lives, the players and those involved will grow as people helping to creating a world that is better.
With all this in mind, we plan to make WURIT 2019 the best it can be!
