Rugby isn’t really Finland’s Cup of Tea, says International Website

Rugby isn’t really Finland’s Cup of Tea, says International Website Finland, the country with astonishing landscapes, is the lowest ranked rugby team in the world at a position of 101, just below Mauritius. The main reason for this was the negligible focus on developing players at an underage level. “US and other countries start focusing on rugby skills at the age of 5 whereas rugby in Finland isn’t given much importance until the student reaches the age of 18-19” quotes the technical director of Finland’s rugby team.

The statement resulted in the management of rugby in Finland taking an aggressive approach and employing resources to develop a fully fledged international rugby team.
