First instalment of Italia Cup

The first instalment of the Italian Cup arrives at the finish line in Umbria.

Grifoni Perugia Promoted

Pending the matches of the teams still to be played in Rome and the rest of the fighting yet to give a clearer and more delineated composition of the final rankings, in Perugia, the Grifoni can overcome the difference points against the Etruschi. The team organized and refereed by Andrew Tagliavento brought all their forces whilst challenging the bad weather.

Players, who participated last summer in the Italia RFL Championship in the ranks of Gladiators Roma, have been involved with the new guys who have the new code for the first time. The first clash on 04 February, saw that the Etruschi emerge victorious scoring four tries in the first 28 minutes, in which Dellaciana converted 2. The first try of the Grifoni, over of the top of the Etruschi, bears the signature of Pallizzetti. The match re-began balanced over the first 10 minutes of the second half and the first 20 seconds, when the Griffoni scored four tries to lead them ahead by two points (24-26) to 64′. The last ten minutes, however, saw a return in perhaps the Etruschi: Angelini, Marchetti and Franzioni able to cross the line and to allow their team to win the first match of Italia Cup 2011.

The return match on Febreary 11 began with the Etruschi who scored two quick tries. Good accuracy was provided the conversions by Cappetti and soon came the prompt response of the Grifoni as they finally were able to strike giving a margin of 2 points, with the match continuing to alternate between the two teams equally and small margin of advantage given to the Grifoni in their match victory. The points difference  finally went through to the Etruschi, having won the first match by 10 points.

A big thanks goes to Andrew Tagliavento who has refereed both matches, the players of the Gladiators that were the tutors to the new companions, all players, CUS Perugia and Mr. Federico Bevilacqua. All of you have allowed Rugby League in Italy to make a step forward. Thank you!
