Rugby selection reaches biggest triumph in history against Czech Republic

The Portuguese rugby team reached today's biggest win in Caldas da Rainha by beating the Czech Republic 93-0 in the fourth round of the Rugby Europe Trophy.

Portugal outscored their previous record of 69-0 on February 27, 2010, against Germany by 24 points.

The result leaves the Portuguese team needing only a draw in the final game of the competition on April 6 in Lithuania to win for the third consecutive time the title of the second European stage, except for the Six Nations Tournament.

Portugal did not need more than 24 minutes to reach the four races that guaranteed the offensive bonus point and was, from that moment on, scoring the score with ease, which proves that it belongs to 'another championship'.

The meeting ended with the 'wolves' looking to reach the hundred points, which were only their own goal, not so much because they did not get a 16th rehearsal in the game, but rather because of the displeasure at the time. shoot the posts: Portugal missed a penalty and six changes, which could have given 15 points more.

In the historic result, António Vidinha and Caetano Castelo Branco were shown with three rehearsals each, while Manuel Marta was the best scorer of the afternoon with 22 points, resulting from two rehearsals and six transformations.

Portugal leads the Rugby Europe Trophy with 19 points, six more than the Netherlands and 14 than Lithuania, which has yet to play two games.

To ensure the play-offs against first-team opponents against Germany, the Portuguese team needs only a draw in Lithuania, or that the country does not win a match against all three matches they have left.
