Disciplinary, EBRA 2019: this is the point and the decisions taken by the EBRA Assembly

The EBRA summarizing commission, together with the board members, analyzed the reports, drawn up tournament by tournament, by the Disciplinary Council and became aware of the fact that each event was optimally managed, greatly limiting the infringements, both during the game, how much at the organizational level.
The only aspect that has caused many problems to the disicplinare and, consequently, to the members of the EBRA assembly, has been that one related to the behaviors had from some members of the French team of the MINOTS.

After repeated negative behaviors in various stages of the European circuit, after the serious conduct held during the final of the European Championship Series, with serious and unacceptable offenses to the referees and EBRA leaders, the Disciplinary Committee submitted to the General Assembly the need to sanction the Minots coach and player. The Assembly, after a deep analysis of the situation and in view of the protection of the referees of the European circuit, unanimously took the final decision:

The assembly, held in UDINE on 21 September 2019, unanimously decided to suspend Minots’ coach Christian Quintane and player Romain Quintane from the EBRA Series 2020.

EBRA Series 2020, here are the qualified teams. Official dates for all series tournaments

Lionel Laugier, the current president of EBRA, has formalized the dates for the SERIES 2020, the headquarters and the qualified teams for the European final of 2020: the final will be played in Lignano Sabbiadoro (Italy). Just Italy managed to qualify as many as six teams for this final, 4 for men and two for women: on one side there will be the Italian champions of Belli Dentro, while through the 2019 rankings the Padova Beach qualified, the Crazy Crabs and the Iulii Forum. For the women’s movement, instead, there will be the Italian champions of the Sabbiette and the Ricce del Villorba. France, on the other hand, will be represented by four teams: for the men’s tournament there will be the European champions in charge of Ovale Beach Marseille and the vice champions of I Minots, while for the girls the title will be played Marseille and Blagnac Maouka . Portugal will be represented in the men’s field by the CDUL and the RC Sao Miguel, while in the women’s category there will be the Pinguinas Burgos, the girls from the Agraria and the Sport Rugby. Let’s not forget the South Africans of the Wild Dogs, the Spaniards of the Barbarians and the Dutch of the Oemoemenoe. Great expectations, then, for women for the Austrian Danube Pirates, for the Spanish Costa Blanca Alicante and for the Dutch Haagsche R.C.

Great news also for the EBRA calendar, which will give space to two new stages: the Hungarian event on Lake Balaton and the Italian event in Alba Adriatica (Teramo) will be added to the EBRA Series 2020 circuit.
