Eulycea Rugby Continues Winning Streak, Defeats Seylos 35-11
In the second week of the Six Nations Rugby Tournament hosted this year in Gallambria, Eulycea's rugby team trounced the Seylosian team with a solid 35-11 victory.

After 15 minutes of back and forth, #34 Denis Bercator was tackled by a Seylosian player on the first long run of the game for the Eulycean side. The tackle forced him to the ground awkwardly on his right leg and his ankle was injured. Team members helped Bercator off the pitch while on the sidelines the bench booed and jeered at their Seylosian opponents loudly.

Team captain Louis Pagani shut that down, however, and after a quick team conference, the team went on to start a 21-0 scoring run with a try from Pagani that completely shut down the Seylosian offense and penetrated its defense with ease for the rest of the game.

Team managers announced Bercator suffered a spiral fracture on his right ankle and was admitted to a local hospital for treatment. He will not return to the pitch for the rest of the tournament.

Pagani told reporters that "things were heated on the [Eulycean] bench," after the rough tackle the Seylosians gave Bercator without penalty from referees. "But we tapped into that anger for the rest of the game and it fueled us all the way to the end."
 

Blaise Albani declares creation of "Democratic League" in EulyceapyTleXt.png
At a press conference in Brisa today, the President of the Republican Party of Eulycea, Mr. Blaise Albani, announced that his party and the Young People's Party of Eulycea would be co-founding a coalition of parties unrepresented on the parliamentary ballot. Mr. Albani and Mr. Timothy Girardi, leader of the Young People's Party, signed an agreement before the press that they would work together under the auspices of a new "Democratic League of Eulycea."

Mr. Albani explained that the future aim of this Democratic League is the same as the current long-term goal of his Republican Party: to reduce King Charles to a ceremonial monarch and hand his executive powers over to elected leaders.

Political experts predict that other unrepresented parties in parliament, such as the Secularist Party and Socialist Party, will soon join Mr. Albani's coalition.

The Democratic League will hold its first convention in Brisa sometime early next year. With a broader coalition than merely the Republican Party's substantial membership rolls—last seen hovering around 90,000—Mr. Albani hopes that petitions to repeal the exclusionary acts that keep his party and others from Parliament will succeed.

However, he has already faced some criticism for this move, especially from existing detractors of the Republican Party such as Baron Benedict de Forgia, an MP of the King's Party. Baron de Forgia told The Times that "inviting radicals and extremists and all the riff-raff of the kingdom's politics will only turn His Majesty's Parliament away from [Mr.] Albani's cause."

Speaking with The Times, Mr. Albani replied that "the people out on the street and the people working for a miser's wage may seem like plain old riff-raff to a baron, but they ought to have as much of a say as any duke, count, or king in how this country is run."

His Majesty's Press Office could not be reached to comment.
