Hungary plays against Lithuania this October in Esztergom


Hungary faces Lithuania on 24th October in Esztergom RCH Stadium After an unlucky year as upcomers in group ENC 2B Hungary currently stays 5th in the Rugby Europe ranking.

In Autumn 2014 we were defeated by the strongest team Lithuania (Lithuania-Hungary 38-29) and  struggled against Latvia as well (Hungary - Latvia 14-16). Unfortunately we lost two games in the very last minute against Cyprus and Andorra in early Spring this year (Hungary - Cyprus 15-17, Andorra - Hungary 23-18).

From 22nd October the Hungarian national team is going to start its preparation for the next ENC season by the lead of Matthieu Lazarges head coach. The team is preparing for the home game first on 24th October in Esztergom and travels to Riga a few days after to play against Latvia.

To strengthen the srcum we invited home András Bárdos, Szabolcs Pocskai, Bence Róth, Thomas Ducrocq and David Darquie who are playing in Federal 1 and 2 in France. We hope to improve a nice, constructive and fast game system with them - said Dénes Debreczeny technical director.
