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.

Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well (Wed, 02 Jan 2019)
The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?
