A week ago, they won their first ever tournament in Metkovic, and now have won their first home tournament in Cavtat.
“We will absolutely remember our first tournament of rugby "sevens '' in the Dubrovnik region,” commented Ante Stojan, a former Croatian rugby international and the president of the Invictus Dubrovnik Rugby Club. The club was formed only a few months ago and already they have an unbeaten record, played six – won six, the name Invictus, or Invincible, Dubrovnik seems correct.
After winning all of their three games at the tournament in Metkovic the weekend before last the club hosted their first tournament this weekend, on Sunday, and continued their winning ways.
“We came to the pitch the night before the tournament and watered it thoroughly, then we sorted out the locker rooms, ensured the sound system and the catering,” added Stojan. Yes, the players have more to do than just win their matches. “This is the first time we have organised a tournament and we really wanted everything to run smoothly, I hope the spectators enjoyed themselves and will come back,” concluded Stojan.
Rugby is catching on, the newest Olympic sport, caught the imagination of several hundred spectators at this weekend’s tournament which was held in Cavtat.
