Marseille’s beach rugby is a milestone for this edition of the EBRA Series. If, in fact, in Porto and in The Hague the teams have tested their own abilities on the sand, after a season spent running on the grass, in Marseille the best of European beach rugby will challenge openly. The French of the Minots, the hosts of the Ovale Beach Marseille and the South Africans of the Wild Dogs will try to do battle with Russia, while the Yakha XIII could be the surprise of the tournament, as happened in the past. << We have worked so hard over the years to make this tournament as international and as level as possible – said Lionel Laugier, organizer of the Marseille stage – I think the road we have taken is the right one. I am, then, certain that in this edition the show will be the master: many, in fact, the teams that arrive on the French sand to play for the final title and, at the same time, to gain points in view of the stage of Lignano and the final of Figueira>>.
After the Hague and Porto, here comes the third stage of the EBRA Series: Marseille. On French soil, some of the strongest and most organized teams on the entire International Beach Rugby scene will compete. There will be the European Champions in charge, of course, of Ovale Beach Marseille, the national team of Russia, the fearsome Minots, not to mention the South Africans of SA Wild Dogs and the stars of the Yakha XIII league. << We have tried to make this stage more and more high-level – comments Lionel Laugier, organizer of the Marseille event and president of EBRA – now the field will be talking, but I expect a great show. A prediction? I do not unbalance myself, but there will be fun >>.
