More info and requests on:
Prague’s veteran rugby club “Old boys Prague” and the Czech Rugby Union are devastated to announce the loss of their great friend and legendary teammate Vladislav “Slavek” Petras. A former player on the national rugby team as well as player and president of Tatra Smichov Rugby Club, Slavek was also the co-founder and president of the first veterans rugby team of the Czech Republic. He passed away last Sunday at the age of 77 after a long battle with cancer, a match he couldn’t win.
In the early 1980s, Slavek and his rugby friends began holding regular matches between Prague veteran teams. And in 1988 Old Boys Praha made its debut tour on pitches across southern England with Slavek as captain and chairman, positions he continued to hold until 2009 when he became honorary president for life. Under his leadership, Old Boys Praha toured the world, as great representatives of two great Czech traditions: remaining active throughout life and joyful socializing!
By 2014, Slavek was the oldest active player in the club. Indeed he collected oldest player trophies not only from the domestic tournament Old Prague Ham, but also at the 2012 World Rugby Festival in Hawaii. The latter festival was attended by over a hundred teams from around the world. Said current Prague Old boys chairman Vladimir Kodýtek of his revered predecessor, “Slavek was able to outplay much younger players using his outstanding feeling for rugby. His jersey No. 15 is now retired and decorating of our clubhouse. A Czech rugby personality, diplomat and a great friend, Slavek Petras will be sorely missed.
