PLAYERS and officials, from La Vila Rugby Club visited one of their chief sponsors Clinica Dental Sol in Calle Pizzaro Villayosa, last week to thank them for their support and sponsorship over the last 15 years.
The team are on a well-earned break, having completed their league season unbeaten, in fact winning every match convincingly.
They now enter the end of season quarter final play offs full of confidence and on a fine streak of form, as the top seeded team.
In the two legged tie, they face Babyauto Zauratz away from home in Zauratz first on Sunday April 23, with a return home leg taking place in Villayosa the following weekend on Sunday April 30.
Bruno Forati head of Clinica Del Sol and his team welcomed the La Vila players with a guided tour of their state of the art facility, which specialises in implantology and orthodontics.
In fact the Villayosa clinic have custom made some of the mouth guards the rugby players have worn throughout this exceptional season.
The connection does not end there either, as one of the staff at Clinica Del Sol, Marta Alegra is a player for the La Vila Woman’s Rugby team.
Forati and the clinic staff congratulated the players on their achievements so far, wished them luck for the quarter finals and expressed their hopes for seeing the team in the semi-finals in May.
