As we previously reported an Invitational Indigenous Under 20s squad is to tour the South West of the United States in 2015. We can now happily announce the official squad list. This is not a selection tour per-se. This is an invitational tour for young men who are influential in their communities both on and off the field.
This is not just a rugby tour.
It is a cultural exchange. Players and coaches will be staying on a reservation in New Mexico (Navajo Nation) for four days and plan to meet with another community in Arizona. Players will be taking genuine items from their own community to exchange as gifts with the opposing teams and the communities they are visiting.
