Event : Dubaï 7’s, SBA Pirates

Our brave SBA Pirates reached the final at the Dubai 7’s veteran tournament. Two iconic ex-rugby players were featured on the SBA team along with Serge: Yann Delaigue and Francis Ntamack. Despite a tough match against our English friends: Iain Balshaw, Simon Shaw and Olly Barkley, we are proud of our Pirates who wore the colours of our association!

Thanks to the support of their sponsors, 850€ were donated to the SBA. A huge thank you to the Pirates and their sponsors for their engagement and motivation. Bravo and thank you!

Cyril Mattera, one of our Pirates who represented the association, confessed: “Lots of emotions still 72 hours later and already the desire to restart this tournament! A 2017 tournament for the books! Meeting these extraordinary men who have such incredible values! Thank you to all the people who helped our team. Thank you to all the players! Long live rugby! MATOS”
