20 November 2017 – Bad news for the Malaysia 7s Under 16 teams who supposed to fly to New Zealand this month. The team under the National Rugby Development Program initial plan is to take part in the Condor 7s in Auckland, New Zealand.
The team, however, have to cancel their trip. Condor 7s suppose to be the second destination for this development team. They did well on their first trip to Perth, Australia weeks back. Malaysia Under 16 team finished as the runner-up as they got beaten by Perth Bayswater in the final.
The decision to cancel the trip could have a big impact on those players especially after months of preparation and training for both tournaments. It should not occur at all especially as this team represent Malaysia and under the national level program.
There is no official release of the cancellation up to this point.
