COTT is a collective of rugby enthusiasts and part-time philanthropists who are hoping to make a difference in Japan. The one-day tournament, which takes place May 29 in Ota Ward, is open to the public and will feature 20 teams with players of varying ages, nationalities and levels of athletic ability.
