Default Rugby in Spain.

Only a matter of time really before I asked!!

I know it happens, there are some half decent clubs, I have even watched some half decent rugby, but what are your thoughts?

Have you seen any? Is there any around your parts?

Have you seen much.

There is a fully fledged rugby club in Denia but as I know very little about rugby, apart from the fact that I love Martin Johnson's screwed up face, I can't say whether it is a good, bad or indifferent club. I only go for the beer and the rugby 7s beach tournaments are always fun.

bit of both, had a nasty injury working a couple of years ago and only had the all clear to start training again the end of last year.
In training now for next season, but I may be out of the country before I start playing, hence the thread.

I see.. I used to watch friends play at school/college in my teens but that seems like such a long time ago I don't even remember the rules anymore .. I can't tell you much other than that, it doesn't seem like a popular nationwide sport as we are not particularly good at it. Hopefully you'll find somewhere to play or maybe somewhere to train kids..

I would love to do a bit of both. Spain has quite a few clubs, admittedly many up north but a few all the same.

Gotta get fit first, the hardest bit is now, its absolutely killing me.

Be patient, recovering from injuries always takes time..

Patience has always been my problem.

El puerto has a rugby team, quite dedicated. I have seen them play, they are hard. there were a few injuries and a very bloody ear! My hubby wanted to join the team but I put my foot down and said no, it might effect work if he got injured. So he is stuck with 5 a side football on mon and thurs night.
There is defiantly a league down here, I can find out more if you want

love

I am very interested in this one...My boys (6 and 7) want to learn rugby here in NZ but I am more inclined to try and push them towards football as we are moving to Spain and I can't remember any rugby clubs when I lived there before. My thinking is that if they already play rugby they will have more in common with the Spanish kids.
