Earlier this week girls from Vietnam, Laos and the Philippines took part in the ChildFund Pass It Back Belfast Cup at Belfast Harlequins RFC, competing against girls from across Ulster with a helping hand from some of the Wallaroos team on the day.

The ‘Pass It Back’ Cup brought young female rugby players from disadvantaged communities in Asia to Belfast to play girls from across Ulster. The initiative was supported by the Irish Rugby Football Union, World Rugby, the Wallaroos and ChildFund ‘Pass It Back’, giving the girls the opportunity to visit Ireland and take part in an international rugby competition.
