– The game left us with positive emotions and impressions only, — says Alexey Markin, the captain of the MAI rugby team, the student of the MAI Institute No. 5 "Economics and Management of the High-tech Industry" – The level of the teams has significantly increased if compared to the previous year, new rivals with strong, competing squads have appeared, and this indicates good progress of the student rugby league. Since this season, there has also been a noticeable strengthening in our team by young players, freshmen, with a lot of experience in the game. Therefore, the tournament was quite easy for us, as it is possible to see from the score of each match. I am also grateful to our coach, Valery Petrovich Khromenkov, whose training does not give us a slightest chance to lose.
