Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club 36 – Jaen Rugby 0
Anything the senior teams can do, the juniors can do as well and Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club’s Under 14 team claimed a comprehensive victory at the weekend to be crowned Andalucian champions.
The result means that Marbella now boasts Andalucian titles in the Senior, Under 18 and Under 14 catagories.
The final took place at the Bahia de Marbella ground and the home side took full advantage of the wet conditions that produced several handling errors. Opponents Jaen Rugby had a nightmare of a game defensively, allowing a well organised Marbella team to run riot, with Izan Lopez having a superb game, running in three of the first half’s four tries.
Marbella went in at half time leading 29-0. In accordance with the rules at Under 14 level that call for a match to be halted if the lead by one side extends to over 30 points, it was only a question of when Marbella would be crowned champions.
The answer was shortly after the restart, and it was that man Izan again, going over for the championship-winning try and a final result of 36-0 to Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club.
Wet, wild and suitably muddy celebrations then followed, with the Marbella youngsters taking an impromptu mud bath! Congratulations!
