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.

Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. 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

The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
