They all started to play Rugby in former Yugoslavia mid fifties of the last century . . .

They remained "faithful" to Rugby until now a days . . . the opportunity to come and be the part of the first ever Veteran Rugby Tournament in Belgrade, as the part of EVRA Series, they did not want to "miss".

Meeting "old rugby friends" a lot of nice memories "came out from the buttom of their souls" . . . promising each to other to meet again at the next Event of Veteran rugby.
