For us it has been a success, having increased the competition by 2 teams means the work we are doing is starting to pay off. We have trained new coaches with the coaching course held in Piacenza and now we have several new coaches, who have worked with the new teams. We are progressing and their is more interest and we have increased our internal activity ".
Fabio Berzieri Hogan, captain of the XIII del Ducato declared: "The championship was hard, even if the results don't show it, it was more difficult to reach the final this year and the competition level is rising! We hope to have a lot of support from our public in Piacenza as we try to win the championship for the third consecutive year. We don't know a lot about the Ariete Este we saw from the results that they are unbeaten as so we respect what they have achieved.
On the other side Alfonso Peloso, captain of the Ariete Este, stated that: "When we started this year with rugby league, we never expected to reach the final of the championship. Game after game we gained confidence and suddenly we were able to win against all the other teams. The game against Silea showed our character. Now we are in the final and anything can happen, since we go to Piacenza as under dogs with nothing to lose. What I can say is that we will give our all. "
