"The British are coming"
EVRA in Athen


"The British are coming" EVRA international tournament in Athens

Attica Springboks (Athens) organised also this year international tournament as the part of European Veteran Rugby Series . . . this time the guests were veteran players from United Kingdom.

Reading RFC - The Rhinos (White - Green jerseys)  and Macclesfield RFC (Blue jerseys) and Attica Springboks  played "round a robin"  games enjoying "summer" conditions in the Greeks capital.

The aim of just "enjoy playing Rugby" was present all the time . . . Rhinos and Macclesfield were great sporting teams and great visitors that would be highly recommended to anyone organising a Veteran Rugby tournament.Nobody was counting the score, only the number of beers consumed at the third halftime . . . Macclesfield "won" there with Reading a close second!

Attica Springboks (Purple jerseys)  as good hosts did also this time a "big step" in promoting Veteran sports - Rugby in this "small" rugby nation. Many thanks to all players, friends, relatives, supporters of Attica Springboks who contributed that one more time that Rugby "won the Game" . . . 

It is to hope that such good "Rugby ambassadors" EVRA shall be able to welcome next year at the European Veteran Rugby Festival in Belluno (September 5th - 8th, Italy) at the "feet" of Dolomiti Mountains . . . 

Take a look at our Photo-gallery prepared by the Club Secretary Tony Kiousopoulos, especially for EVRA web-visitors . . .
