Also the third stage of the EBRA Series, Marseille, was played and for this summer 2019 the guidelines that will lead to the Figueira finals are taking shape. Russia, with its organized way of playing is concrete, has shown on the field to be perhaps the strongest formation of this circuit, at the same time the Minots have given him a hard time, both in the Hague and in Marseille , without being able to beat them. The European champions in charge, the Ovale Beach Marsiglia, are experiencing a year of transition, even if their level of play remains among the highest of the Series. The South Africans Wild Dogs have convinced for play, structure and speed. What awaits us then in this end of season EBRA? Certainly the Padova Beach and the Italian champions in charge of the Crazy Crabs, already from the stage of Lignano, will want to be protagonists and thus raise the general level; without forgetting the other Italian team that will participate in Lignano 2019, the Monsters: young team and very strong ball in hand. It will be two weeks of fun and great beach rugby, that’s for sure. << I expect great things from this season finale – commented Lionel Laugier, president of EBRA – so many teams can compete for the final title and this is an aspect that is good for the whole movement. We all continue to work like this and the results, like the awards for the work we are doing, I’m sure will come. Although it is satisfying for us to see so many teams fighting for the final title >>. Even in the women’s tournament, Russia was the host, even though Marseille, Blagnac Maouka and Sport Porto performed well at high levels throughout the tournament.
