In Italy, people who hail from the Pacific Islands are known as ‘Pacifici’. This loosely translates into meaning a ‘gentle, calm people’. Not a description one would immediately associate with this particular group of Pacific Islanders. At least not in the heat of battle in the LIGNANO BEACH ARENA. In the world of SB5’s, these guys lay down a serious marker to all-comers when it comes to producing power and pace. Nothing less than MAGNUM FORCE! And so we are delighted to announce our 4th Challenger for SB5 2013 – The Pacific Islanders.[frame align=”left”]Magic P.I. – Andre Gini, 2012[/frame]Following on from Sol Henare (Hall of Fame 2012), this year the P.I. will be lead by another Beach legend, Andre Gini. This guy is as professional as they come in the world of Beach 5’s. And having already gathered and studied footage of their team performances from last season, Andre is working on strategic moves that he believes will lead them to capture the greatest of all Beach 5’s treasures.
Mark our words, this is a team to respect, a squad that have demonstrated time and again the ability to bring it on. Former finalists and 3 times semi-finalists at Lignano and finalists at last years 2012 Zeebrugge Masters in Belgium. What consistency ! And what dedication to the new religion in world Rugby…..SUPER BEACH 5’s – The Fastest Game of Rugby on the Planet.
July 2013 will mark their 7th consecutive assault on the sands of Lignano Sabbiadoro. Everyone on the Beach here knows…….facing their legendary SIPI TAU………..these boys from the PACIFIC become another force altogether……P.I……..MAGNUM FORCE!
UNMISSABLE! BE THERE…….JUST BE THERE!
