Nazir Gasanov has been been playing rugby since he was 14 years old. He claims that he had tried almost all team sports “when I picked up the rugby ball I realized that this is my sport and it grabbed my heart.”

“I want to us to lift the trophy this year and it’s a big challenge for me and I am sure that we will achieve success…”

Nazir his one clear goal for this year “ I want The Tel Aviv Heat, to enter not only the name of our club in history but also to be part of this history as a gold medal winner….”

“At the end of the tournament, I plan to return to Israel and develop my own club which is called Tel Aviv Rugby Club…”

“To all the fans who will not be able to attend the games, I want to say that you are in our hearts and everything we do is for you...”
