Spanish 7s secures Rugby Europe Sevens Championship Series title

The Spanish men’s sevens team had preciously won in Lisbon, now they have topped it up with another win in Moscow.

Their day one at the Rugby Europe Sevens Championship Series, was a brilliant start for the team, demolishing Poland 33-0 and Georgia 38-0 before stumbling 21-19 against rival neighbors Portugal in their final pool match up.

That defeat pushed the Spanish team to push even harder, beating Italy on day two 36-7 with ease in the last eight and Germany 19-0 in the semi finals match. A surprise package from Lithuania was then finished off with a 47-5 at the final buzzer.

Lithuania battle through the Russian men in the semi finals beating them narrowly with a 21-19 final score, this left the squad out of steam as they went up against Spain who was clearly on fire.

Germany finished in third place in this event and in the overall standings they were second behind Spain.

Spain finished up with 40 points, the Germans with 34 and Russia were third with 30 points.

Spain was part of the inaugural Olympic Games in Rio back in 2016, but missed out on the opportunity this year at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Both the Spanish men’s and women’s teams missed out on qualifying for the second Olympic Games and also missed out in a last chance Olympic Repechage in Monaco a few weeks ago which saw Ireland men and France and Russian women’s teams make it to the Tokyo Olympics.
