This is a photo from 1914 Football Rugby Romanian national championship. Many of the boys in this photo were to fight at Marasesti in just 3 years.

This year Romania celebrates 100 years since the Great Union. This would not have been possible without the sacrifices of the Romanian soldiers in World War I. Among them were the Romanian rugby players of the era. Several dozens of rugby football players were injured and seven of them lost their lives: Captains George Iconomu and Nicolae Cratunescu, lieutenant George Manu, the second lieutenants Corneliu Mateescu and George Tovar (all Tenis Club Roman), second lieutenant Ion Barzan (Roman Stadium) and soldier Pantilimon Pribegeanu (Matei Club).

LE: and yes, the pitch where the photo was taken is nowdays Arcul de Triumf stadium

What's that poster about FR? It looks like pre-revolutionary Moscow, and I think I can make out the words rugby, Anglia and provincial football. That's as far as my Cyrillic gets me.

I know they were very liberal with national representation rules back in those amateur days, so I wondered if the Ian Robertson, fly half for Rhodesia, was the same as Ian Robertson the former Scotland fly half and one of my favourite rugby journalists. But no, they were different people.

In 1918 , on famous rugby ground in Edinburgh Inverleith, Serbian students played students from british colonies and won 8:3.
More than 20 Serbian boys played rugby in Scotland and England during The First World War.
SRU published book about the first centrury of Serbian rugby with a lot of photos, documents and stats.

Impresive but in Georgian alphabet. Unfortunately book about serbian rugby is in Cirilic (Serbian) alphabet.

Book is free for purchase and I think that price is 15-20 EUR plus post expenses.

Ex Soviets read Cyrilic
They read Latin as well
They are generally well-educated people

Pls, write here the title of the book and
site where one could order it online from

Thank you. They don't seem so young. Without details on the article around, I would have thought it was a senior team with some younger players

Age-rigging was rife:

In 1979 in Lisboa
SOV was fielding GEO winger born in 1954,
ie he was 25 year old athlete
whom could not contain doping-fed, paid RUS pros

-- in those times rugby was an amateur game
and SOV and DDR athletes were also hyper-amateur, of course
