“Valorugby represents for us an ambitious reality from which to draw inspiration and teaching, and even if at another technical level, we share many things, which bring us closer and make us similar.
Two distant realities that speak the same language, that use the same words, which to define themselves are called “a big family”. With this premise, I want to convey our warm welcome to all the Valorugby staff, with the hope that a good memory will remain of us and a bit of nostalgia will remain when we return to the fields of the Canalina. “
