Russia dominates the Marseille stage

In a two days of great beach rugby on the beach of Marseille, Russia manages to establish itself in both tournaments: men and women. In the men’s tournament the Russians have the best in the final on I Minots, which in any case play a very thick game, proving to be a team of great value and level; the third place, instead, is reached by the hosts of the Ovale Beach Marseille, able to impose themselves on the South Africans of the Wild Dogs, authors of a tournament played at very high levels. In the feminine, as already said, Russia dictates law, demonstrating on the field that it is an organized team with individualities of absolute international value. << I am satisfied with how this two days of beach rugby went – commented Lionel Laugier, president of EBRA (European Beach Rugby Association) and organizer of the Marseillaise stage – I saw an important increase in the overall level of play and this is definitely a Positive aspect. Now we must continue to work on this path to redeem this increasingly international and engaging circuit >>.

Russia conquers the North Sea Beach Rubgy

Russia conquers the Netherlands and, more precisely, the North Sea Beach Rugby: both in the men’s and women’s tournaments, in fact, it is the Russian nation that stands out. Among the males are the Marseilles in the semifinals and then Le Minots in the final having to surrender to the organization and technique of the Russians, while the women’s final saw the Italians of the Sabbie Mobili lose against the Russians, but play great against a national team that has proved on the field to be the strongest. << We are proud of how this tournament is increasingly becoming a reference point for beach rugby – comments Kasper Bleijenberg, one of the organizers of the event – it is our intention to create more and more synergies to make the North Sea beach Rugby always more international and high level. We know we should still work a lot, but let’s start from a solid base and look to the future with great serenity >>.
