THE young rugby players of Andalucia under-18s have been crowned champions of Spain for the second year in a row.

The team travelled to Madrid to defend their national title against a ‘very strong and well organised Cataluna’.

In an incredibly close start, the teams finished the first half 8-8 with a try from Marbella star Jack Davies.

The second half saw Andalucia open up the game with tries from fellow Marbella players Facundo Munilla, Christian King and Pablo Miejimolle to finish up 27-20.

“This was an important match for Marbella rugby club as 12 of the starting 15 players are from the club. It again shows the depth of talent produced by Marbella each year,” said Marbella Rugby Club director David King.
