Oporto: 10 men’s and 8 women’s teams for an intense weekend of EBRA – branded Beach Rugby

Everything is ready for the Porto Beach Rugby 2019: from this evening, in fact, the teams will begin to arrive and from tomorrow, with kick-off scheduled for 11.30, the matches will be played without stopping till 19.00.  Porto is the second tournament of the EBRA Series. Great expectation for this event that is gaining, every year, the national Rugby scene and more. In fact, there are numerous Portuguese teams ready to do battle to earn those points necessary to carve out a space in the 2020 EBRA Series final; we remember that the panel for the 2019 final was decided by the scores achieved in 2018, while this summer we play access to the 2020 final. << We have worked a lot and in an increasingly professional manner – comments Nuno Gramaxo, one of the event organizers – now the field will have the last word. Personally I expect a beautiful oval show, in a context that we have tried to exploit at 360 ° >>.

Everything is ready for the North Sea Beach Rugby 2019

Everything is ready for the North Sea Beach Rugby: next weekend, in fact, the first leg of the EBRA Series will be held at The Hague in Holland, in what is qualifying, year after year, one of the most important Beach 5’s tournaments of Europe. Two days of great rugby on the beach that involves girls, the youngest, up to the male seniors who challenge each other as much for the European Series as for the Dutch Beach Rugby Championship. << Let’s say we have worked hard to get to this point – says Kasper Bleijenberg, vice president of EBRA – European Beach Rugby Association and one of the organizers of the North Sea Beach Rugby – we are trying to give an increasingly international value to the event and the participation of the team from Russia, in this edition, encourages us to continue on this path. We are well aware that there is still a lot of work, but I think that the tournament’s organizational machine is going in the right direction >>. As said The Hague represents the first stage of the EBRA Series and there are many teams that will fight for the 2019 title: in addition to the Minots and the Ovale Beach Marseille, great expectations revolve around the South African Wild Dogs team, the Italians of Padua beach and Crazy Crabs, as well as Curacao and RandUba’s Dutch. << I expect a high level tournament – concludes Kasper Bleijenberg – a prediction? I don’t want to be unbalanced, but I’m sure the show will be guaranteed >>.
