U14 – Marbella 33 Vs 0 Gibraltar
The U14s ran in trys from Dennis Pflantz (3), Daniel Coca and Ike Irusta with all but one of the conversions taken by Gabriel Udo. The official match ended shortly into the second half and this meant that Marbella brought on the rest of their players to play a friendly against the visitors. In this session trys were scored by Dennis Pflantz and Charles Edwards with Gibraltar scoring a consolation try.

U16 International Trials
Marbella Rugby Club are proud to claim that 3 players were away on International trials last weekend.
In Toledo from the 28th February to the 2nd March Jaime Tirado and Benjamin King were camped with the Spanish U16 squad for National trials.
These should have included Adrian Noriega (sprained knee ligaments) and Tomas Munilla (broken wrist) who we hope for a quick recovery and have been assured they will be available for the next National event.
At the same time another Marbella player, Jaime Ross was in Scotland being assessed for selection for the U16 Scotland squad.
We hope that they will all be successful in their endeavours.
