The weekend of October 5th will live long in the memory for the Beijing Devils where we proudly participated in the International Inclusive Challenge in Tokyo.

The weekend kicked off on Friday with Chairman Steven Lynch representing the club at the signing of a historic memorandum of understanding between Japan Rugby Football Union and International Gay Rugby, overseen by the first lady of Japan. On the Saturday, a strong team of Devils past and present ran out 90-5 winners against a World Barbarians XV. An excellent day was topped off by a strong session at the England vs Argentina game and a classic Devils night out at Prop bar in Tokyo.

The team even made it into the day’s official Rugby World Cup video (See first 4 seconds):

Our club welcomes players of any race, age, religion or sexual orientation and stands for respect, tolerance, sportsmanship and teamwork! Long may it continue!

Once a Devil always a Devil!
