U14 – Marbella 12 Vs 12 Del Estrecho
After their devastating loss in the Andalucia Final last week the U14 coaches decided to get the players to play in a local friendly against Rugby Del Estrecho.
With some players on holiday, the Marbella side were a little light on their starting squad but it meant that all the players available on the day were able to get a good amount of time on the playing field.
It was a hard fought match against a side that are improving at a fast rate and will be tough competition in the leagues over the coming seasons. The end result was a draw with Marbella having a lot to improve on over the next few weeks before their National Tournament in Valladolid on the 10th and 11th May.
U16 – Triangular – Marbella/Tavistock/Del Estrecho
The U16s were visited by a team on tour from Devon, England called Tavistock RFC. To make the evening more interesting Rugby Del Estrecho also brought their squad along to form a mini triangular tournament.
A fun evening was had by all the lads and we hope that the English side went away having enjoyed their trip to the Costa del Sol.
Marbella 29 Vs 0 Del Estrecho
Marbella 43 Vs 7 Tavistock
Tavistock 10 Vs 14 Del Estrecho
U16 – Marbella 17 Vs 5 Del Estrecho
Rugby Del Estrecho joined the U16s again on Saturday for a full match friendly for preparation for the Andalucia final that will be played against Ciencias, Sevilla on the 26th April.
Marbella had 9 squad players who were unavailable at the weekend due to injuries, holidays and National selections which meant that some of the newer players had a good amount of time in full match mode which is great for the future of the squad.
It is great to see a friendly rivalry developing between Marbella and Del Estrecho which will prove to create more competitive matches in the league next season.
