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
