In the last 2 seasons our next Challengers have earned their place amongst the best Beach 5’s Rugby squads in Europe. And that is some achievement when you consider they’re homeland is one of Europe’s land-locked nations, without a single beach. Resourceful and as hardy as they come, all the way from Vienna, Challenger #7 – the marauding force that is The Danube Pirates.
On Day 1 – SB5 2014, in an early morning raid, they almost added victory against 2011 SB5 Champions, Padova Beach to their list of Beach 5’s treasures. Beaten by a last minute try on that occasion, had that result gone their way, last year could have been a completely different tournament.
Once again this year they’ll be led by Captain Dachler, whose troops will include SB5 2014 MVP & Top Try Scorer, Max ‘Never Nervous’ Navas, the power and offloading skills of Alex ‘Dr. Raddatz’ Radomirov, not to mention the strike force of Asboth, Herschbaumer, Chiu, Reiseneder, Okozilla, Hagenauer, Borozan and Hemetsberger.
Will this be the year for the infamous ‘Skull & Cross Bones’ to fly high over the Lignano Beach Arena ?
