Now they will now move on the Marseille Beach Fives where next weekend they will endeavour to defend their 2012 Champions title. However, with the 2013 tournament in Marseille now officially added by the Lega Italiana Beach Rugby (LIBR) as a qualifying leg in the Italian Domestic Championship, the Tori Bianchi won’t be the only Italian side lining out. Of particular note will also be the presence of the Maccarese Roma, one of Italy’s legendary Beach 5’s Clubs, who now concentrate on playing their Beach Rugby around Europe.

What are the chances of an all Italian final in France next weekend ? Not to mention that Marseille is also the 1st Leg in the new EBRA Beach 5’s Series. Stay tuned for updates and results.
