If you’re looking to challenge your young rugby players, why not enter them into this youth rugby tournament in Belgium? The Ghent Easter Rugby Festival is an annual tournament that covers all age categories, meaning there really is something for everyone.

This rugby tournament takes place over Easter weekend. Its location means that you can enjoy the long weekend here, without having to spend too much time stuck on a coach. Plus, there’s lots of great entertainment arranged around the tournament, giving it a fantastic international atmosphere.

Why not extend your tour and make this a sporting experience to remember? Make a detour to Paris, where your players can train with Racing 92’s own academy coaches.
