a draw with RFC Vaduz

On a warm but extremely windy Saturday afternoon conditions were perfect to start the spring season with a friendly game against our friends from Vaduz Rugby Club.
With many spectators alongside the pitch everything was set for a big rugby party.

From the very beginning it was obvious that Vorarlberg couldn‘t train as a team on the pitch since the winter break.
Poor communication and some missed tackles resulted in two quick tries for Liechtenstein‘s strong centres.
After that Vorarlberg found a way to get into the game especially by controlling the set pieces.
The difficult conditions and the lacking discipline made the game quite messy in the second of three periods.
Thanks to the excellent referee who had to send two Vaduz players to the sin bin it got better in the last 25 minutes.
Mainly because fitness is not yet where it should be there were some easy tries in the end which made the score level at 41:41.

Congratulations to Thomas and Giacomo for their excellent performances in their first game for Vorarlberg.

We would like to thank Vaduz for a brilliant afternoon of rugby and the audience - including legends of Liechtenstein rugby like Leo Suter - for supporting both teams despite the nasty wind.
We wish Vaduz all the best for the rest of the season.
