How to get to the city   

Air:         There are two airports within an hour or so of Agen:

                Bergerac to the north and Toulouse to the south

                Bergerac Airport:

                (33) 5 53222525

                Toulouse-Blagnac Airport

                www.toulouse.aeroport.fr

               

                From Bergerac to Agen:

                The only practical way into Bergerac, about three miles away,

                is by taxi.

                If you are driving, there is no need to go into town as the airport is just under three miles to the south of Bergerac.

                Follow signs for the N21 south. This single-carriageway road is reasonably quick and the 50 miles takes no more than one-and-a half hours.

                The N21 comes into the north-east of Agen.

                The rugby ground, signposted as Parc des Sports, is in the south-west part of town.

               

                From Toulouse-Blagnac to Agen:

                Toulouse is France's fourth biggest city and therefore a better base for those looking to turn their rugby weekend into a city break.

               

Rail         Get into Toulouse via one of the regular shuttle buses then head to the SNCF railway station to the west of town.

                There are regular train services to Bordeaux via Agen, with the journey lasting about one -and-a -quarter hours.

               

Road      Take the A62 peage (toll motorway) north, signposted for Bordeaux. The 56-mile route passes by the south-east quarter of Agen. The journey should take about one-and-a-quarter hours.

Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems? (Tue, 17 Oct 2017)

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
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

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