An Unpredictable French-Khmer Game
It was last Wednesday.
Mathias, PE teacher of the French school asked Kampuchea Balopp to bring some players from Aspeca to participate in the training of the Under 13 french team. Arriving a little bit earlier than the planify time, we had to wait 30 minutes for the PE teacher to start the training, but the Khmers’ enthusiasm was so big that they move directly on the field to join the young French players who were already on the pitch. Once again, this scene proves how rugby is such an unfailing means of integration. On one side, street children, on the other, expat children, in the middle, one ball. No adult to accompany them, just the enjoyment of the game.
