Any team aiming to capture the 13th Phuket International Rugby Tens title will need to overcome last year's winners the Kriel Roosters, who have confirmed their attendance.

The annual tournament organised by local resident Patrick Cotter takes place from May 27th to 29th this year.

As well as the South African Roosters, several other teams have stated they will participate, including the Australian side the Qantas Koalas, the Old Bangkok Bangers Colts from Thailand and Japan's Asian Japanese Dragons.

There will be a varied programme of social events for participants and spectators and there is also a tournament for older teams called the Coffin Dodgers.

The opening day will see the group stages of this latter competition take place, with the equivalent matches of the main event running the following day.

All the finals and decider games are scheduled for May 29th, when the winners will be crowned.

Moorrabin Rams Vets, who have won the Coffin Dodgers for the past two years, are again in the running.
