Current SUFC front rower, Bilal Elbatoory, has been called up to be part of the Lebanese National Rugby Team to play in the West Asian Rugby Championship next week. 

The International Tournament will see the National teams of Jordan, Iran and Lebanon compete over a week of Rugby in Jounieh’s Fouad Chehab stadium, with only one able to finish as West Asian Champions. 

Only receiving the call up a week ago, Bilal leaves this afternoon to fly to Lebanon to join a squad of players from across the globe and will be away for two weeks. 

The first test will be against Jordan on April 14th, followed by Iran on April 18th – we look forward to hearing the results. 

Good luck Bilal, and enjoy the trip!
