The Rugby Groud Guide

Eating, Drinking & Sleeping

 

Eating and Drinking at The Ground           Behind the main stand there is a tent which sells, amongst other things, mussels and chips. The bacon baguettes are also meant to be good.

You can also get cider, wine and beer.

               

Club Shop            The club shop is underneath the main stand. A good souvenir is a Biarritz scarf.

               

Other Places to Eat & Drink          After the game it is best to head to the Clubhouse behind the main stand to enjoy the company of the local fans.

In the small and compact town centre there are many places to enjoy a drink.

Le Mannekenpis bar and brasserie, on the seafront, has a big screen, as does Le Royalty on Place Georges Clemenceau.

The Irish Pub on Avenue Victor Hugo is also popular with fans.

Other bars for rugby heads include the Newquay  Pub on Places Georges Clemenceau and Red Cafe on Avenue Marchal Foch

Have a beer at Hotel Le Caritz and you may see owner   Pascal Ondarts, the Basque prop who made his French debut in the "Battle of Nantes" against New Zealand in 1986.

               

Accomodation   Biarritz is a popular holiday destination and is literally bursting with hotels so finding somewhere to stay should not be a problem.

The tourist office has a full list of places to stay.

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.

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
