The Rugby Groud Guide

Stadium & Tickets

 

The Stadium       Aime Giral was 18 when he kicked the late conversion that gave USAP an 8-7 win over Tarbes, and USAP their first French championship in 1914.

A few months later he was dead, killed on the Western Front. The stadium is named in his honour.

The 12,000 capacity stadium has three impressive stands, two of which run the length of the pitch, with  the Chevalier (main stand) on the west and the Desclaux (which has terracing on the front) on the east.

High wire fences and the design of the terraces make the standing option less attractive but the atmosphere more than compensates.

Most seating is covered but those with a weather eye might want to note that the roofing does not cover the northern end of the Desclaux.

Will Rugby Union trash its finest qualities in 2019? (Tue, 05 Feb 2019)

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues.
