Australia's Warringah Rats Rugby Club (http://www.warringahrugby.com.au/ ) sent a heavyweight squad for their groundbreaking humanitarian rugby tour to Cuba .
The 24-strong party took over 900kg of extra gear (including clothing, stationery and specially-requested items like toothpaste, razors, herbs and spices) which was distributed to local communities around Havana.
Air Canada allowed each tourist to take an extra 30kg of luggage on top of their normal allowance.
This is Warringah's third tour combining rugby and charity work after similar trips to Kenya and Fiji.
"It is all about growing the players as human beings and to learn there is another world out there while having a game of rugby," Parsons tour manger added.
