October 6, 2015 - Florin Vlaicu kicks game winning penalty over Canada
"The Oaks rallied from 15-0 down after 52 minutes to triumph 17-15 against Canada at Leicester City Stadium on Tuesday, a deficit no team had ever overcome at a RWC. The incredible victory, sparked by two tries from captain Mihai Macovei and a dramatic late penalty from Florin Vlaicu, keeps alive Howells’ dream of securing automatic qualification for the RWC 2019, while sending Canada home winless.... the outcome was in little doubt when Vlaicu was given the opportunity to cap the comeback, 45 metres from goal in the 78th minute, from the fifth penalty Canada conceded at the scrum." - RWC

Florin Vlaicu, la prima partida din acesta editie a Rugby Europe Championship, a deschis scorul inca din minutul doi, dupa o lovitura de pedeapsa obtinuta de inaintarea noastra, dar Germania nu s-a lasat intimidata, elevii lui Kobus Potgieter preluand initiativa.... Finalul jocului a fost pe muchie de cutit, pentru ca Vlaicu i-a readus pe Stejari in avantaj, apoi TeHuia a inclinat balanta de partea nemtilor, ultimele doua lovituri de pedeapsa insa fiind de partea noastra sub presiunea inaintarii, Vlaicu stabilind rezultatul final: Germania-Romania 12-17." - Federatia Romana de Rugby boxscore
