Webb Ellis proud to support John Marsh Rugby

John Marsh was an Englishman who worked in Kyiv in the Ukraine and during his time in the country, he organised sponsorship for junior rugby teams in the country, to provide much needed kit and funding to encourage the growth of the game. When John passed away, his friends commssioned a trophy in memory of the keen rugby supporter, and the Kyiv International Junior Rugby Tournament was born.

Now, in its 9th year, this year's tournament took place in early October. The eventual winners were??? -??????????? from Moscow Oblast and they were presented with the John Marsh Memorial Trophy by new British Ambassaor to the Ukraine, Mr Simon Smith.

For most of the 10 and 11 year olds competing in the tournament, this was their first taste of a rugby tournament, which shows the project really is delivering on John's aims to bring rugby to more and more children across Ukraine.
