Such is the demand to play at LIGNANO that no sooner is one squad lost, that another is found ! And what a squad !
Yes, following the surprise last minute withdrawal of the ROMANIAN squad yesterday, SB5 2013 have the great pleasure in announcing ‘LES BLEUS SEVENS’ from France, as their replacements.
As the finest invitational SEVENS side in France, Les Bleus is considered by many as one step away from the French National SEVENS set-up. Their focus is naturally on SEVENS but with the growing interest and developments in European BEACH 5’s RUGBY, they have also decided to put their skills to the test in the dynamic ‘sandy’ environment of BEACH 5’s. And already with great success, having taken victory at the inaugural MUNICH BEACH 5’s in February 2013 and again in May 2013, at an invitational BEACH 5’s tournament in LUXEMBOURG.
This has certainly whetted Les Bleus appetite for more and so when faced with the last minute opportunity to join the SB5 2013 ELITE at the legendary LIGNANO BEACH ARENA, their manager Gian Carlo Toufou didn’t hesitate for a moment to confirm their involvement.
And it was literally just in time for the 2013 POOL DRAW ! Les Bleus squad details will be published shortly. Check out our 3 GREAT POOLS article.
