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.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income.

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?
