The tournament rules of SB5 Lignano are known to be ‘the toughest and most selective’ and, right up to the last minute, nothing is ever taken for granted. Teams come and teams go. And so unfortunately it has proved for Portugals Caparica Sharks who must withdraw from SB5 2013 due to injury and key team members being called up for international duty with the Portuguese 7’s squad. But what is unfortunate for one, is always fortunate for another. And so we are delighted to announce their replacements. All the way from ROMANIA, the BLACK SEA BOYS.
Rugby tradition in Romania dates back nearly 100 years. And as a pioneer of the sport, it’s no surprise that they are one of Eastern Europes’s leading rugby playing countries to also welcome the exciting new code of Beach 5’s Rugby. www.beachrugbyromania.ro
Afterall, along their eastern coast, they boast some of the finest beaches to be found on the Black Sea, like Mamaia. Indeed many others are interestingly named after mythological gods like Neptune, Jupiter, Venus & Saturn.
And so it seems the Gods have shone on the BLACK SEA BOYS as they now have the long awaited chance to make their 1st appearance at the Lignano International Cup. Indeed they will be the 1st Romanian Beach 5’s squad to step onto the ‘sacred sand’ of the Lignano Beach Arena.
But at the TEMPLE of INTERNATIONAL SUPER BEACH 5’s RUGBY, will the BEACH RUGBY GODS continue to favour them when they come face to face with the Elite of SB5?
