Last Saturday 28th of March, three academy players from the Servette Genevois Rugby were representing Switzerland U18 in their victory over Croatia (8-5). Killian Oulevey shares his thoughts right after the win: “It was tough game, it took a last second penalty to divide the two teams. I was bouncing up and down with joy once I saw the ball slice through the uprights. It was great to see the crowd cheering us on and it was a real privilege to wear the Edelweiss jersey.” After their first win, the young men are now fully focused on the semi-final against Lithuania.
Jonathan Torossian, the coach of the Swiss backs explains: “Last year, we lost in the final of group B against Sweden. This year we aim to play our best rugby and make every effort to be serious contenders for the promotion to group A. "
The whole Servette family is behind its young players and wish them a lot of success during the tournament.
