Prior to the Rugby World Cup (Japan World Cup) Japan tournament on the 20th, Japan and Australia's UN representatives held PR events at the United Nations headquarters in New York. About 50 diplomats and families from seven countries enjoyed “touch rugby” where they touch their opponents instead of tackling.
20 teams will participate in the Rugby World Cup, and 48 games will be held at 12 venues throughout Japan until the final on November 2. Hiroo Bessho, UN Ambassador, wearing a uniform representing Japan, said, “I want to make this a good opportunity for everyone, not only rugby enthusiasts, but also through sports.”
Prominent in touch rugby is David Campige (56), known as Australia's legendary player. Until he was overtaken by Daisuke Ohata, the representative of Japan, he kept the world record “64” for international games. Ride through the gorgeous steps between the representatives of Japan and make a try with a touch of touch.
Campige said, “Sports can be a common item in any country. Skin color is irrelevant.”
