As 2010 Champions of Lignano, in 2011 they surprisingly fell at the hands of another Italian team. But to date that has been the only slip-up in an impressive series of victories that has brought these Italian boys back to the spiritual home of SUPER BEACH 5’s RUGBY. Still unbeaten by any team from outside of Italy, they are Skillful, they are Strong, they are Fast and they are the 5th Challenger for SB5 2013. We give you ‘I Pessimi’ from ROME.

In translation, ‘I Pessimi’ means ‘The Misfits’, a handle they adopted themselves as they are sometimes known to encounter issues with discipline. But such encounters haven’t stopped their rise to the top of the Italian Championship, which they have now won on an impressive 4 occasions.

I Pessimi are the successors to Rome’s other history making Beach 5’s team, The Maccarese, who now choose to play their beach rugby abroad. They are therefore confirmation that Rome and the Lazio region continue to produce beach rugby squads of the highest quality. Sad perhaps that these two great gladiatorial teams haven’t tackled each other in recent years.

And so to the heat of the BEACH ARENA, what does this mean for the ‘The Hookers’ ? As the reigning Barbarian Champions, will they succeed in defending their title from attack by these unruly Gladiators of Rome ?

See for yourself……LIGNANO 20-21 July 2013.

It just keeps getting bigger……
