Following a convincing 86-0 victory over Nepal at the Asia Rugby Division 3 - South Region competition, Rugby India is targeting promotion to Division 2. With a score of 86-0 this year on 19th November , the Indian National Men's Team defeated Nepal in the Asia Rugby Division 3 - South Region competition at the Rabindra Sarobar stadium in Kolkata.

First off, I'd like to congratulate the Indian team on their triumph. We appreciate Nepal's enthusiastic performance and look forward to seeing you again. Rugby's ethos is centred on collaboration. Sharing. Because a team cannot advance unless all of its members work together. The Asian Rugby Championships Div 3 (South) will be held at Rugby India as a result of this. it's a pleasure to host Bangladesh and Nepal in Kolkata in conjunction with Asia Rugby. We want to provide our guests a sense of value and respect. We continue to anticipate a thrilling competition that will be played in accordance with the greatest ideals of the rugby spirit,' stated Mr. Rahul Bose, President, Rugby India, at the tournament's opening ceremony.

The Indian men's squad, which today featured up to 17 players making their debuts, crushed Nepal in the opening match of their campaign under the leadership of Prince Khatri. The Asian Rugby Championships Div 3 (South) will be held at Rugby India as a result of this. This impressive start gives India impetus as they prepare to play Bangladesh on November 25th, 2022, in hopes of qualifying for the Asian Rugby Championship Division 3 playoffs, where one team will be promoted to Division 2. Teams like Kazakhstan and Iran will participate in the playoffs based on their respective regional qualifications.

"As rugby players representing India, we have been anticipating the return of 15s rugby in Asia. Three years later, the team is ecstatic not only to have played top-tier rugby but also with today's triumph over Nepal. We are also honoured to host Bangladesh and Nepal. On the field, rugby will be competitive and fair. Our relationship with the teams will be warm and hospitable off the field. All the very best to all three teams!”said Prince Khatri, Captain, Indian Rugby team.
