New (but not young) star on the top
Quarterfinal matches are over and scorers took advantage of the opportunity to make some impact on RRC Top Scorers list.
New leading scorer with 42 match points is Vlado Ursić – experienced player of RK Nada Split. Twelve tries scored by RK Nada players in quarterfinal match against RK Ljubljana gave him opportunity to score lot of points from conversion kicks. With one try and one penalty kick he rounded number of scored points in that match to 20.
Luka Jureško, newly appointed skipper of RK Zagreb, added 3 tries to his record, and now holds second place with 40 match points. He is also leading RRC try scorer at the moment with eight tries scored so far.
Just three points from leader, on the third place, is Maximilian Navas from RC Donau Wien. “Never nervous Max”, as often called in his club, has securely landed one conversion and four penalty kicks this weekend in Esztergom and thus has secured win for his club and opportunity to challenge RRC Champions in Split next weekend.
Another two “try scorers”, Tonči Buzov from RK Nada Split and Milan Orlović from RK Pobednik Mozzart Beograd, are holding fourth place with 6 tries (30 match points) each. Filip Mijić from RK Zagreb with 27 match points at seventh place concludes list of players in top ten that are still competing. Because KARC (Beke and Nagyhegyesi) and Vitezek (Collet) are out of this year’s RRC competition, and last year’s RRC Top scorer Ivica Rubelj from RK Nada is injured (wishing him all the best!) rest of the top ten scorers are not in position to fight for this year’s title of RRC Top Scorer.
