22 January 2019 – Rugby is always a game related to character development, not just for the player but also to the community related to it. The two days of Rangers 7s Rugby Tournament that took place at the SP Setia Badminton Academy saw a good example of that.
“At our rugby club, we don’t only teach our kids rugby. During our Rangers 7s tournament, they helped out in every way they can. From litter-picking to waterboy duties, from helping with carrying truckloads of rubbish to being marshals for matches, from taking photos to assisting at our fund-raising drinks stall, from helping out with the team’s f&b needs to running around to any instructions from the adults – they did all that and more.
It’s about shared responsibility, confidence, character, coachability, delayed gratification and teamwork. This is our village.”

It’s a great initiative by the Rangers RC to have the tournament, and at the same time initiate the effort to instil the character formation to the rugby community involves. This can be a great example for others to follow.
