Dinamo-Bucuresti is one of the top rugby clubs in Romania. Located in the nation’s capital, Bucharest, the Dinamo Bucuresti side traditionally consisted of members drawn from the ranks of the civil service and/or police. Along with the army side, Steaua, the Dinamo team is one of the nation’s top rugby union outfits. The Dinamo Gaz Sud team, as they are presently known, won the 2007-08 Romanian top division (Divizia Nationala) title, defeating arch rivals Steaua 6-0.
Famous former players include Petru Balan, a prop who made a name for himself in recent years anchoring the front row for French club Biarritz Olympique, and Gabriel Brezoianu, a Romanian international winger now plying his trade at Tarbes.
