Ingus Aivars, the leader of “Ežu”, won the award for the most productive player of the tournament.Janeks Tškāns, a rugby player of the RFC “Livonia” team “Grundzāle”: Two, three times the sprinters run away and the result is. I don’t know why, but the opponents couldn’t hold the ball today or play really well in the defense. We expected much more resistance, because they are always very strong in the seventh. Maybe we were surprised that we made the maximum with a relatively weak line-up. ”Kristaps Andersons, the head coach of the CoR “Butchers”: “It was visible that not only our players, but also the players of other teams are not ready to play the sevens yet – so many injuries both for us and other teams. We were injured by five of the 12 players and suffered serious injuries, not a sting. I watched that only 8 or 9 players played for “Livonia” in the final. Congratulations to them on their victory! Apparently they were more moody and wanted more, they were able to cross our line more successfully, but we had problems creating the game, considering that Elmārs Šefanovskis broke his nose in the first game, got a serious injury, but Emīls Balodis was injured and can be said to play only decisive game, but could not fully take the initiative. All this together led to a failed outcome. ”The information was prepared byLRF press servicelast_img
