Hosting international rugby tournaments will play a major role in raising the profile of the sport in China, said Jarrad Gallagher, Asian regional general manager of the International Rugby Board.

"The key point of bringing an event to Guangzhou is that it will help inspire more interest from all circles in rugby," Gallagher said.

Gallagher made the remarks at a news conference on Thursday in advance of the Women's International Rugby Sevens tournament that will be held from Thursday through Sunday in Zengcheng, Guangdong province.
