First rugby clash for spring …



Sofia Barbarians 0 – 45 Yantra Gabrovo

22 Mart 2015, Kostinbrod

Barbarians played rugby first game for 2015 in Kostinbrod against a strong team of Yantra Gabrovo. Guests led by coach Trifon Kostadinov, who until recently was the head and the national team of Bulgaria have ambitions to win the championship. Yantra had superiority in the game and clustered in a wrap, like their better team movement bringing them outnumbered and scoring nine trais in the game, most marked after long rallies.

And what about the barbarians  Strong game on the third line, as number 8 Thibault Paturle and Zhelyaz Boyadzhiev made many tackles as you normally do in three, four games. French forward debuted us to this position and a strong showing. Forwards actively playing defense and partly in attack, where we made a lot of line outs lost and we could not possess for a long time. The game of the backs was complicated against them had much faster and more sophisticated opponents. Debut of positions 10 and 12 did Stefan Hranov and Michael Zheliazkov who have more experience in the forwards. Great movement with the ball and dangers that did came from Svetoslav Nasvadi snd Sive Dzhibirov was difficult to capture by the enemy. Debut for Barbarians made Niki Miloushev  and Andy Candela, who will be remembered with strong punctures the position of number 8. A decent match held all of our players, which is good for us 🙂???????????????????????????????
