FBR : After winning the event twice, what are your expectations for the 10th edition of Figueira Beach Rugby?

In addition, as a personal I am proud to be in Portugal with you this year because my son has chosen to do for two years his studies in this country which welcomed him with warmth and respect.

The players who will have the chance to participate, will be those who will win the hearts of the public!
