Reseña del editor:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mauritius national rugby union team represents Mauritius in international rugby union. The team is composed almost entirely of white Mauritians, specifically members of the Franco-Mauritian ethnic minority group, as rugby is a much less popular sport amongst the Indo-Mauritian majority. Mauritius is a member of the International Rugby Board (IRB), but the national team is ranked as third tier, and Mauritius have yet to compete in either the Africa Cup or Rugby World Cup. Rugby was introduced to Mauritius by the British Army during colonial times (1810-1968). The first club in Mauritius was the Dodo Club, founded in 1928 by a group of Franco-Mauritian rugby players. With the founding of many more clubs, rugby was regularly played at a senior level from 1928 to 1975. However when Mauritius became independent in 1968, rugby began to struggle as funding from Britain and France was cut. But thanks to a highly successful development program in the late 20th Century, rugby was reborn in the island nation. Mauritius began to participate in Sevens tournaments with Réunion, Madagascar and other island nations in the Indian Ocean.
