Rugby Africa has a "About Rugby Africa text:

"Created in 1986, Rugby Africa (http://www.RugbyAfrique.com), previously the African Confederation of Rugby (Confédération Africaine de Rugby – CAR), is one of the six regional associations composing World Rugby (http://www.WorldRugby.org), the international organisation responsible for the governing of Rugby Union and Rugby Sevens. Rugby Africa unites all of the African countries which play rugby union, rugby sevens, and women’s rugby. Rugby Africa organises the Rugby Africa Gold Cup, the qualifying competition for the Rugby World Cup 2019, and Africa 7, a qualifying competition for the Olympic Games 2020. Rugby Africa has 38 members, including 22 membres and associated members of World Rugby, 10 members and associated members of Rugby Africa and 16 new countries collaborating with Rugby Africa."

Great. So Rugby Sevens isn't Union anymore? :shock: :lol:

I was more surprised that 22 World Rugby members and 10 Rugby Africa members makes 38 and not 32.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Two major factors imo makes it a special case

1. The local populace generally integrated well with the Ruling Brits when Ceylon was a colony and adopted their customs than the Indian sub continent natives did especially in Sports

2. Rugby was very popular and established in the Sri Lankan public school system unlike in India/Pakistan and Bangladesh who till recently can be considered obsessed with only Cricket, Some School Rugby encounters has over 100 years of playing history in the island
