Switzerland is facing its destiny…
The Swiss National Rugby Team will face Malta, on Saturday, April 9th in Zurich (stadium Utogrund) for its last home match in the European Nations Cup 2014-2016, division 2A. In case of victory, the Helvetians will travel to Croatia on the following weekend (on Saturday, April 16th, 2016) to win a ticket for division 1B, which is the European TOP 18 (division 1B composed by Belgium, Moldavia, Ukraine, Netherlands, Poland and Sweden).
After an almost faultless path in Europe Nations Cup (only 1 defeat 14-27 against the Czech Republic on 01.11.2014 in Nyon), the Swiss National Rugby Team is only 2 wins away from the promotion in division 1B (only 1 win if Czechs lose one of their 2 last matches in Israel or against Croatia). So motivation will be very present for Gil Coquard’s and Jérome Malinjoud’s men for their next appointment; Switzerland’s coaches have just provided the list of selected players for the match SWITZERLAND - MALTA (see in attachment).
The Swiss Rugby Union chose the city of Zurich to organize the next SUISSE RUGBY DAY, on Saturday, April 9th in the stadium Utogrund, in association with Rugby Union Zurich and GC Zurich Rugby : it will be the first international rugby match in the biggest city of Switzerland.
For the curtain-raiser, the SWISS U17 juniors team will face Italians of the Accademia Federale di Benevento, for a test match which will be a good performance indicator. Then it will be their elders’ turn to go on the rugby pitch of the stadium Utogrund with a kick-off planned at 15:00. Come in order to participate in this SUISSE RUGBY DAY and to support SWITZERLAND !
