First friendly team matches

Last week­end was the start of the run-up to the re­gional league matches.

The re­gion's Un­der 16 and Un­der 18 teams made their de­but at the Tor­res de Cotil­las fed­er­a­tion grounds..

The U-16 team won their match by 64 to 14. It was a great feel­ing said coach En­rique Fuster " The team were very se­ri­ous and or­derly at all times, tak­ing into ac­count that it is the first game that they played to­gether".

The U-18 team ended the day win­ning their match 33 to 20. Their coach Diego Vil­larejo com­mented, "There is still much work to be done. They had a very good at­ti­tude but the dis­ci­pline in the game has led them to com­mit many er­rors and is a clear that we need to im­prove in the face of the of­fi­cial cham­pi­onships of Jan­uary se­lec­tions."

As for the reg­u­lar se­nior leagues, a match was played for both the men's and the women's leagues.

In the men's league the ITV Vega Baja stays un­beat­able up to now in all their matches

This time they played beat CURM, who vis­ited Ori­huela prac­ti­cally clas­si­fied for the sec­ond phase of the league, by 65 to 14. The XV, the other un­beaten team of the league de­fended their sec­ond po­si­tion against Las Tor­res Rugby Club, win­ning their match 90 to 5 in Monte Romero.

The next match day will make clear who will come out on top of th­ese two teams.

Univer­sity Club of Carta­gena A won their match against Lorca / Totana at La Tor­recilla 0-57 and the CR Squa­los Mar Menor de­feated the fil­ial team of Carta­gena 7 to 18.

In the se­nior women's league, the cur­rent leader, the XV Rugby Mur­cia has rested. This left the other teams with a good op­por­tu­nity to catch up with them.

This is what the Univer­sity Club of Carta­gena did win­ning its match in Gan­dia against La Safor by 0 to 66.

The Squa­los Mar Menor CR drew against the CUDER 15 to 15. While the Elche team who played Akra Bar­bara re­sulted in a 10-9 vic­tory by the vis­it­ing team.
