Promotions are possible at the university

This weekend, the CD Universidad de Granada de Rugby will contest the second leg of their final for promotion to Division of Honor B from group C. They will face off at 12.00 noon on Sunday at Puerto de Santa Municipal Sports Center Maria To Atletico Portuense.

They must overcome the 13 point deficit they had at the end of the first leg match last Sunday at Fuentenueva rugby field in order to move up in category. Cadiz won 27-40, and they will defend it to secure promotion.

The winner of the tie will still be eligible to fight for the goal. Promotion will be played in a two-legged match against the penultimate group C of Division of Honor B, which is the Marbella Rugby Club. It will be a battle for a place in the second category national rugby.

Juan Alfredo Cervan "Goofy" will be coaching the team. They must show their best to win the tie against Atletico Portuense. This rival has been taking the measure well and has already beat them in two matches of the regular competition Primera Regional. The University of Granada won the first period and dominated their opponent, but they could not maintain that pace after the break which Atletico Portuense used to tip the balance in their favor.

Franco Scaldaferri from Uruguay, who was responsible for kicking the transformations using sticks, was hurt in the second half. It will be crucial for the University of Granada to recover from it.

The National Disciplinary Committee of the Spanish Rugby Federation decided that Alcobendas Rugby, a relegated team, will take over one of the Division of Honor B places. There are two more at stake.
