The Rugby Groud Guide

Stade de France - The Basics

 

 

Introduction: Saint-Denis was the first to bring the name of Jesus Christ to Roman Gaul. He was the first Bishop of Paris and was martyred by the Romans for his faith.

Saint Denis was decapitated on Montmartre, but he did not die. Legend has it he picked up his head and carried it as he walked, headless and barefoot, all the way to the village that would take his name.

               

The Stade de France can at times be one of the best stadiums in the world to watch rugby. Although it may not be the most beautiful stadium, what it lacks in looks it more than makes up for with its personality. There is something special experiencing French fans in full song, and when the whole stadium launches into La Marseilles the atmosphere is unbeatable.

However, things can change in an instant and if the home side are not performing the atmosphere can quickly turn sour.Altough the ground lacks the "je ne sais quoi" of the Parc de Princes, on the practical side, the Stade de France is extremely easy to reach by public transport, the seats are comfortable, and views from the stands are good.

It was completed in 31 months at a cost of 400million euros, jointly financed by private interests and the French state.

Will Rugby Union trash its finest qualities in 2019? (Tue, 05 Feb 2019)
If ever there was a year for rugby union to show the best side of itself, it is 2019. A first Rugby World Cup to be staged in Asia, fresh financial investment offering club rugby a chance to take a significant next step, a Six Nations championship requiring only a sprinkle of on-field brilliance to … Continue reading Will Rugby Union trash its finest qualities in 2019?

Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well (Wed, 02 Jan 2019)
The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing.

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

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. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?
