With sheer determination and persistence, UNIRAZAK Rebels Rugby Club (team B) emerged as the overall Champion during the UNIRAZAK CEO 10s rugby tournament on 24 August 2019, led by its Captain, Mohammad Wal Ikram Che Ismail. The team fought against more than 16 rugby teams from various private universities in Klang Valley namely — UNITAR, MSU, IUMW, GMI, UNISEL, UNIKL and KPTM, amongst others, and successfully came up on top.
This is the second official tournament organised by the Rebels and its members with the support from the University, in an effort to encourage healthy competition and foster a spirit of sportsmanship through rugby, amongst students in Malaysia’s private universities.
UNIRAZAK CEO 10s saw the rugby teams competing in two stages; group and subsequently, the knockouts. The 3 teams competed in each category which are category A, B, C and D and upon completing the group stage, all participating teams advanced separately to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals, in the Cup, Plate, Bowl or Shield category. Winners in each of the main stages of the match received trophies, medals and cash prizes.
Several local companies also took the opportunity to sponsor the tournament; Strike Rugby Gear sponsored jerseys as well as complimentary prizes; Iqbal Halik Legacy and Eika Global Resources provided funds for the launch of the tournament and prizes for the winning teams.
Well done to the all the players, and kudos to rugby fans and Razakians who came to show their love and support!
