Despite the torrential rain that hit Dubrovnik over the weekend an international rugby sevens tournament was held on Saturday. Eighty players from five clubs took part in the tournament, including the host club from Dubrovnik, Invictus Dubrovnik.
Rugby is relatively new to Dubrovnik but this attractive and fast paced form of the game, rugby sevens, will only help to motivate even more interest. Clubs from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro took part in the tournament on Saturday.
Rugby Club Invictus Dubrovnik was formed only six months ago but has already grown and for this tournament the trainer had a challenge as interest was high. And with three wins out of four the Dubrovnik club finished second behind the club Herceg from Mostar. In third position was Arsenal from Tivat, in fourth Ploce and in fifth Metkovic.
The trainer of Invictus, Petra Drušković, added that whilst the conditions were challenging the team played well but of course there is still plenty of room for improvement.
