The Croatian national rugby sevens team are the European Conference 1 sevens champions…
Croatia recorded five victories and one loss on their way to the title in Bulgaria over the weekend. Croatia opened the tournament with a 17:7 win over Turkey before recording a win over Norway and a loss to Luxembourg on the opening day.
The second day saw the Croatians beat hosts Bulgaria to set up a semi-final clash with Hungary and an impressive 17:5 win put them into the final against Luxembourg. It was second time lucky and the Croatians this time managed to record a 45:14 win to claim the title and a chance for promotion next year.
“Nik for me was the best player at the tournament, he was a real leader who gave us this title. I want to thank the whole team, the atmosphere was excellent, all for one and one for all” said Antić.
