The Rugby Groud Guide

Agen

 

Introduction       Rugby has been played in Agen since 1908, and    Sporting Union Agenais has won the Bouclier de Brennus eight times since 1930, but not since 1988.

They were losing finalists in 1990 and 2002

Subsequently they have had a period in Pro D2, but were promoted in 2010

Agen's 30,000 inhabitants are proud to call their town the prune capital of France. As with many other small towns on the Top 14, if there were not for the rugby team there would not be much going on. It is beautiful country though,   with a well-deserved reputation for good eating.

He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
