After Marius Iftimiciuc 23 yo (ex Tiimisoara Saracens and Oaks Team) signing for CA Périgueux Rugby in Federal 1 (2nd row) we see now another prospect of the future Oaks national team going abroad - Cristian Chirica 23 yo (ex CSM Stiinta Baia Mare and Oaks International 14 caps) signs for SCA Pamiers in Federal 1 (plays openside flanker/No8)...Good luck to both!...

Is Federal 1 a higher standard than Romanian Superliga?

Probably similar, but Federale 1 has more money than most of the RFU Championship.

Some clubs do. But I read on here a while ago that a professional league below the Pro D2 will be formed of professional Federal 1 teams. I don't know if these teams will be included or not. I will have to check.

Neither Perigueux nor Pamiers will be in "Nationale".
Pamiers is a bottom team, and Perigueux is promoted.
Perigueux was pro at the beginning of pro rugby, and then in 2011-2012, before financially collapsing.

I think Baia Mare, Timisoara or Steaua can easily manage in Federal...These young players will get more visibility and it will help their development.
A few years back Chirica at U19 was pursued by Toulouse & Tarbes (and internally by Timisoara & Steaua) but he decided to go to Baia Mare. Now as a 23yo and with the current uncertainty in Romanian rugby, this is the right time to step up in his career.
Pamiers had romanian players in their past teams: Marius Niculai (Romanian international at the 2003 World Cup - no8 at SCA from 2005 and still around with the kids teams), then Alexandru Valcu (last season - played as openside flanker)

SCM Timisoara team (as shown on the SCM facebook page) for tomorrow's game against CS Tomitanii Constanta
The 1-st and 2nd- line could easily be the Oaks lineup.
Also it shows Moa Maliepo at outside centre, probably in the last few games under Timisoara's colours before his move to MLR Huston SaberCats.
It would look good to end his Timisoara career with a title

This afternoon in Baia Mare first SuperligaCEC Bank semifinal.
CSM Stiinta Baia Mare - Dinamo Bucuresti 76-19 (43-14)

Baia Mare scored 12 tries in a game they controlled from start to end, with ease. The game was live on TVR1 and http://www.rugbytv.ro
Having watched the game, it looks like SuperLiga have now started to use the TMO assesment in all games to asssist the referees. Early days, but the use of TMO is fragmenting the game way too much! (i'm talking about the games here in Romania...my opinion!).

Stiinta Baia Mare:
1. C.Pristavita,2. O.Cojocaru, 3. O.Baliashvili, 4. D.Mytia, 5. M.Danila [Cap], 6 B.Bitsadze, 7. N.Immelman, 8. S.Gradinaru
9. H.Kisting, 10. T.Maramuvunawasawasa, 11. A.Apostol, 12. S. Fakaosilea, 13. J. Tomane, 14. I. Botezatu, 15. P.Popoaia

Rezerve:I. Hartig, M.Dico, R. Dugladze, F.Rosu, A Tigla, D.Manole, A. Bucur, A.Alexe
Coach: Eugen Apjock

Expect a much more competitive game tomorrow in Bucharest, the other semifinal:
Steaua Bucuresti - SCM Rugby Timisoara...shown on TVR1 and http://www.rugbytv.ro (15:30 local time)

If Russia does ever get its Kontinental Rugby Liga going, Timisoara, Baia Mare and Steaua Bucuresti should be the Romanian teams, not Dinamo Bucuresti.

Dinamo is missing 8-10 players who couldn't travel back to Romania due to covid restrictions...

Thank you. That explains the big loss. Let's hope Dinamo Bucuresti are strong next season. Bucharest needs to have 2 strong teams.
