The Dubrovnik Rugby Club, Invictus Dubrovnik, competed in their first rugby tournament in Metkokvic last weekend. The Dubrovnik club was formed only a couple of months ago after holding their first training on the 20th of February in Cavtat. And although they are still in their formative process the Gladiators won the tournament in Metkovic.
The Invictus Dubrovnik opened the tournament with a 24 – 10 win over the team from Ploce, they continued their winning form with a comprehensive win over Herceg Mostar 33 – 12. In the final they faced the hosts, Metkovic, and won a tight game 7 – 14.
Ante Stojan, the president of the Invictus Dubrovnik Rugby Club commented that, “we are happy to compete in our first tournament and are obviously delighted with the result. This was our first competitive match and to end up winning the tournament was a great sign that the future for our club is bright.”
This Sunday the Invictus Dubrovnik hope to continue their winning ways when they are the hosts of a tournament in Dubrovnik.
