The participating teams included Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH), New Zealand International School (NZIS), Jakarta International School (JIS), Global Jaya International School (GJIS) and the Jakarta Komodos Junior Rugby Club (JKJR).

JKJR also carried out their regular Saturday morning training session for Under 6’s, 8’s, 10’s, 12’s and 14’s boys and girls in conjunction with event. JKJR also did a ‘sausage sizzle’ to help raise funds for the club.

A number of referees received a solid introduction to refereeing several of the matches and the all of the children got a buzz from playing some competition Rugby.

The next round of Jakarta Schools Rugby will be hosted by Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH) on Saturday November 15, with matches due to start around 8am. This tournament will also see the introduction of a new Under 18 Girls team from SPH, who will play matches against the JKJR Under 18 Girls. Spectators are most welcome to attend and JKJR will be doing another ‘sausage sizzle’ to feed all the hungry mouths.
