A historic game is set to be held this spring in the month of June between Wales and South Africa in RFK stadium in Washington. This showcases the growing popularity of this sport in the capital of the country. It is rare that international teams are invited to play in the country and this game between two other international rugby teams besides the home team would make it unique.
This game is to be a showcase of rugby at international levels and it would prove to be an engaging and memorable match to witness for the locals. It would help to grow the fan base for rugby and also inspire rugby athletes of the future, both adults as well as kids. Rugby is still to gain popularity as much as football and basketball in this region, but the sport has potential to grow and become popular in different regions. For the South African and Wales teams it would help them showcase their skills and fortify their world rankings.
