Zapping World Fifteen RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP: The editorial team’s dream XV
XV Del Leon beat Portugal last weekend and snatched their ticket to the 2023 World Cup in France. This is the second participation in this competition for Spain after 1999. In the pool of the Spaniards will find themselves Ireland, Scotland and South Africa, to name a few, what to do pale any nation. In the meantime, Spain is savoring, as evidenced by this testimony from Lucas Guillaume, Albi player in National:
« Yes, it was one of the challenges to qualify the country. This will bring sponsors, visibility but it will also give the children an illusion. Yesterday there was a full stadium with lots of children. We stayed for over an hour and a half taking photos and signing autographs for families and even rugby schools.
So I hope the Federation will ride that wave. There is clearly something to do, it is a country that loves high level sport. Today, we are making a place for ourselves in a nation largely dominated by football. We even made the front page of Marca, it’s historic. » he told our colleagues at Rugbyrama.
The Spanish team will play two matches at the Matmut Atlantique stadium in Bordeaux, not far from Spain. Enough to create considerable enthusiasm around XV Del Leon.
