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.

Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?

Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems? (Tue, 17 Oct 2017)
  We could be witnessing the start of a perfect storm for English rugby:  too many clubs losing too much money, ever-increasing demands on players to the extent that strike action has been mentioned, and PRL’s latest whizz, the controversial suggestion that the domestic season should run from September through to the end of June. … Continue reading Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems?

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 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.
