The Rugby Groud Guide

Eating,Drinking & Sleeping

 

At the Ground:

There is something of a unique system in place for drinks inside the stadium. You rent a plastic glass for a small fee and obtain vouchers for your drinks. Then you head to a bar to get served.

 

Other Places to Eat & Drink:

In a town which is twinned with a similar industrial area,   Salford in England, rugby fans migrate towards Le Cafe Pascal, (4 Place de la Victoire), near the cathedral, which was opened by a former Clermont second row,

Other bars nearly include:

The Ovak: 107 Avenue de la Republique

Le Matchiko: 56 Avenue de la Republique.

               

Accommodation:

Most of Clermont's hotels are concentrated just off the place de Jaude, close to the town's main shops, and around the rather characterless station area.

There isn't a tremendous choice, but they are generally                good value.

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.

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
