Two Sydney University Football Club (SUFC) players have been selected in the Australian Universities team for the World University Rugby Sevens to be held in Swansea, Great Britain, from 06 – 09 July, 2016.
Current Elite Athlete Program member studying a Bachelor of Science at USYD, Matt Narracott, and Former Elite Athlete Program member, Justin Fourie, will represent Australia at the 7th Edition of the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU) World University Championship to be hosted at the Swansea University International Sports Village.
FISU encourages top performances in international competitions in harmony with and complementary to the values of higher education – a goal shared by the SUSF Elite Athlete Program.
Rugby Sevens entered the programme of the FISU World University Championships in 2004 which resulted in 159 rugby players from 9 countries competing in Beijing (CHN), and SUSF are proud to be contributing athletes to the 2016 event.
SUSF congratulates the boys on their selection and wish them both the very best in the preparations for the tournament.
