About



The X Code Challenge is a national level talent ID campaign initiated by the Singapore Rugby Union to develop a pool of female athletes for Singapore National Women’s high performance teams.

As a lead up to SEA Games 2017, the X Code Challenge is the search for athletic women who are keen to take up contact rugby as a new sport.
