Deaf Rugby Sevens Tournament at XVI Australia Deaf Games 2012

This was very inaugural Deaf Rugby Sevens Tournament in XVI Australia Deaf Games ever in the history! It was very exciting moment for all of us, but especially specific for Deaf and rugby communities. Because this tournament was very successful and amazing that it generated the highest crowds of all participation sports in the Australia Deaf Games.

Deaf Rugby Sevens Tournament was competed in Geelong, VIC which was held over for two days and involved three state Deaf teams (NSW, VIC and QLD) and the Fiji Deaf Rugby Union team.
