Transact Pro/Miesnieki Team Takes Part in the European Rugby Champions Cup 7
The European Rugby Champions Cup was held in St. Petersburg on 12-13 May. Our club, as last season’s Latvian champions, received an invitation to participate in the tournament.
The tournament brought together clubs from Georgia, Spain, Moldova, Switzerland, Finland and Lithuania. The host country of the tournament – Russia – was represented by three professional clubs.
For the Transact Pro team, participating in an international tournament at such a high level was a great opportunity to test their strength against some of the best teams in Europe. Of the matches played, Transact Pro’s win against ‘Art Academy’ from Georgia was a real highlight. Over the past 25 years, neither the Latvian national team nor any of the Latvian clubs have been able to beat the representatives of the Georgian rugby school.
