During this weekend the F.I.R.L will be participating in the womens as well as mens international tournament . The tournament will be against Hungary and the selection team of “Ile deFrance”
The Italian national teams,both men and women, will be confronting this tournament under the Eiffel tower to demonstrate all the hard work they have put in the last months, together with the technical staff of the F.I.R.L. This international weekend will give the players of both teams the opportunity to compete on a high international level.
Alessandro Cuomo, coach of the national women’s rugby league team makes it very clear that he is enthusiastic about this opportunity and would like to see the progress he made the last month with “his girls” .
Tiziano Franchini vice president of F.I.R.L said: “After the stage we had Saturday we found an increase in the level of the players playing rugby league and this is great to the see the optimal progress of our boys in the international area.”
On 29 July 2013, it should be a very rich day for F.I.R.L with 3 national teams playing in three different games. Italy vs Russia in Este, Padova , the national men’s A team and the national women’s team will participate in Paris in the ” tournament of the capitals.”
The F.I.R.L would like to thank Mr. Regis Osmont for inviting us and giving this opportunity to our national teams . Having said thank you, we hope this would be the beginning of a long relationship between F.I.R.L and the French committee of “Ile de France” and to participate in more international tournaments we might be organising this year.
