About

What's the Story?

Gift Egbelu (Gift Time Rugby USA) and Jason Bray (The Rugby Lovers Guide to Asia) are embarking on the adventure of life time, a cycle from Singapore to Tokyo for the 2019 Rugby World. It will be a 3700 km ride over 38 days through seven different countries and meeting numerous Rugby communities and causes, with Jason and Gift capturing every exciting moment on camera to create an exciting, heart warming and life affirming documentary series. 

The Causes

Central to this documentary will be four Rugby related causes which Gift and Jason will visit: The Nicholson Memorial Fund (Singapore), The Nak Suu Academy (Bangkok) Kampuchea Balopp (Cambodia) and the Asia Center Foundation (Phuket). 

The Clubs

The driving force behind these causes are Asian based Rugby clubs, and we will be celebrating this ride and them too. Below is a list of the wonderful Partner Clubs Gift and Jason will be encountering on their adventure. There will be more so stay tuned...

Jason and Gift 

This documentary series will follow two fun loving friends from diverse backgrounds. There is 32 year old Gift Egbelu, a second generation Nigerian, living in Louisiana USA, who will share his high energy, infectious and generous spirit with everyone he meets on the ride. Then, there is Jason, a 46 year old Aussie, a laid back character, who enjoys a beer, a laugh and has a cheeky streak a mile wide. Gift is Rap and Jason is rock -  but together they have a chemistry and love for adventure that will entertain and inspire.

 The Documentary Series 

The documentary series will contain a minimum of four episodes of approximately 35 - 45 minutes in length and will be launched in January 2020. In this series the audience will see Jason and Gift wind their way through Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and finishing in Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Along the way, our intrepid heroes will encounter a diverse array of local colourful cultures, characters and Rugby communities- and having a bloody good time doing it.

There it is people, so don't delay, get on board and support Gift and Jason today!

Risks and challenges

The Challenges are considerable. Both Gift and Jason are small online media outlets promoting Rugby in non traditional Rugby regions (USA and SE Asia). Yet for this ride they are putting a lot their limited resources and physical stamina on the line. The Singapore to Tokyo ride is all or nothing for this crazy duo.
