The Indian women created history on Saturday as they produced their first ever international win in the Rugby 15s.
The historic win came against Singapore in the Asia Rugby Women’s Championship Division 1 as India won 21-19.
It was a thriller of a match as India’s Sumitra Nayak handed the win after kicking a penalty in the dying minutes.

Sweety Kumari gave India the lead initially just like she did in the match against Philippines, but India lost that game.
Incredible achievement for @RugbyIndia women’s 15s team.
