Staying at Dinarobin Beachcomber, Heyneke Meyer, who is also the former coach of the national South African rugby team has stated that this tournament could help boost the popularity of this sport in Mauritius. “The youth need role models and I strongly believe that this tournament can also help young children meet and play together with professional players. Here in Mauritius there are lots of local talents who just needsome coaching.” said the former Springboks coacah. This tournament will regroup the best rugby clubs in the world, mostly from the Southern Hemisphere and some from Europe. The competition will involve eight teams, divided into two groups of four.

During his speech at the press conference, Gilbert Espitalier-Noël, CEO of Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels, declared that he is very proud to be supporting this sporting event. “Having myself been a rugby player, I think that Beachcomber shares some of the values of this sport, in particular, team spirit and camaraderie. As a matter of fact, we have been working towards strengthening the team spirit within the group since I came into office some two years ago. These are values in which we firmly believe.” he said.



Beachcomber’s CEO also hopes that this tournament will have a positive impact on the country and that the advent of Beachcomber World Club 10s will encourage rugby fans to visit Mauritius, especially during the low season.
