Members of the Rugby Illinois Tornados select side recently completed an historic tour of South Africa. While on tour they experienced the culture, explored the sites, and of course played some rugby, finishing with a 3-2 record and memories to last a lifetime. We asked Tornado Pierre Philbert of the Chicago Wapiti club to provide his reflections on the tour.
