Promoting Rugby in Greece

Festival XV de Gaule 2023

Attica Springboks (Athens) the organisers of this traditional Festival decided that this year Event should be the promotion of Rugby in Greece . . . and included all age categories / mixed with the parents . . . and played Touch Rugby.

So they had Mixed Touch teams Tournament with Academy players, Men, Women, Parents and invited other clubs and schools to participate.

A S Academy players then all got some games against visiting players from other schools/clubs.

By that time the visiting Veterans team Les Tubes a Essais (France) had arrived and they applauded and cheered on all of the young players’ efforts!

As the Attica Veterans team also included Veterans that had played for other clubs in Greece, so one could call such team - “Greece Veterans Select team”,

For such an occasion the decision was to wear the Jerseys with Greece’s flag!

The games had been played 30 minutes (due to the heat), every Veteran played and had fun!

The “Third Halftime” brought even more Fun & Friendship with local food, drinks and watching the European Champions Cup all together . . .

The Les Tubes a Essais (France) were true Rugby Gentlemen . . . Attica Springboks were proud to host them.

See you next year in Athens . . .
