Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club asked for a show of support from rugby fans yesterday, and certainly got it as Fortress Bahia was packed!
There was a festival atmosphere as the home team took on UR Alemeria. The club, which has had its bank account frozen due a disputed IBI tax, threw open its gates.
Rugby fans came in their hundreds, eager to support the embattled club and happy to donated via collection tins, buying club merchandise or drinking in the clubhouse – all in a good cause.
In windy conditions Trocadero Marbella Rugby Club beat Almeria 31-21, but the real winner was the club itself.
Let’s up that the powers that be see sense and let this fabulous club continue on its winning way!
