No, we don’t. Busan Rugby is an amateur (social) Rugby Club, and we participate in friendly invitational matches/ tournaments and all Korea Expatriate Rugby Association (KERA) tournaments.
During the official KERA season, we train on Saturdays. We usually train at the Sasang Riverside Park – see the map on the Contact page for directions. Depending on weather conditions, we also occasionally do beach training sessions at either Haeundae or Gwangan beaches. Training times are subject to change, and we announce changes in the Facebook Club Members Group.
