Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii, working with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, has successfully represented the Romanian Rugby Federation before an independent panel appointed by World Rugby in proceedings regarding player eligibility rules for the 2023 Rugby World Cup qualifiers.

According to Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii, the panel "found that the Spanish Rugby Federation had violated the eligibility rules regarding the residence criteria of a player who appeared for Spain in two matches during the 2021-22 Rugby Europe Championship counting for the qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup."

"As a result of this decision, the Romanian team qualifies directly for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France," the firm announced, wishing "Romania's national rugby team 'Stejarii – The Oaks' the best of luck at the 2023 Rugby World Cup and in their preparation ahead of the forthcoming rugby world championships!"

Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii’s team included Partners Cornel Popa and Dan Cristea.
