BANTING, Selangor – Kolej Matrikulasi Selangor are one of the most reputable institute in Klang Valley. Its ease of access has always been appealing to SPM leavers but their success in hosting their first rugby 7’s tournament will be a big pulling factor for SPM leavers.
Tournament Committee representative, Mohd Rohit bin Safuan, says that they are very happy with the tournament outcome and hope that KMS will continue to host such tournaments in the future. They have all the facilities and manpower required and it will be such a shame such resources are not being utilised every year.
