Marbella Rugby club will host the national U16 rugby championships on the 18th and 19th of May. The event will be held at the San Pedro sports grounds by the Rio Guadaiza. Two tournaments will run in parallel, an open and closed tournament.
The closed tournament will be disputed by the 8 best teams in the country, each of which will be the champion of their region.
Marbella will represent Andalucia and have expectations to do well. However, they will have to be on top form to win this competition. CAU Valencia who have won this title for the last two years will again start as keen favourites.
At the same time 21 other teams will compete in the open tournament. This is open to any U16 spanish team that wishes to partake.
The standard of Rugby will be high and the event should be exciting. Entrance is free with a bar facilities on site with the chance to win some great prizes in the raffle.
