AFTER AN incredible season which saw them win all 22 league games, La Vila Rugby Club will enter the play offs later this month as firm favourites.
After beating TecnidexValencia 76-7 in front of a loud and passionate home crowd last Sunday the club finished top of Honor Division B with a total of 107 points.
Despite falling behind to an early Kepse try for Tecnidex, scores from Ignacio Gutierrez Müller, Miguel Angel Ponce, Gonzalo Pérez, Óscar Viotti, Guillem Carrión, Matías Jara, Luciano Martínez and Gerónimo Fernández completed the rout for la Vila proving what a difficult proposition they have been for opposing teams in the league this winter.
Their maximum points total ensures they enter the play off quarter finals as top seeded team. They will play the eighth seeded team Babyauto Zarautz RT, away from home on the weekend of April 22/23, with the return fixture at home the following weekend in the Estadio de Villayosa.
Should they be succesful against Babyauto they will play the home and away semi-finals on the two subsequent weekends. The remaining two teams will contest the final over the weekends of May 20/21 and 27/28.
The first games of the quarterfinals, with the teams seeding in brackets, are as follows:
Babyauto Zarautz RT (8th) vs CR La Vila (1º)
RC L’Hospitalet (7th) vs French Liceo (2nd)
AVK Bera Bera RT (6th) University of Burgos Colina Clinic (3rd)
CP Les Abelles (5th) vs CRC Pozuelo (4th)
Ties to be played on the weekend of April 22/23.
