The City of Toulon : An Introduction

Situated in the Provence region, under the protection of Mont Feron at the southern end of the French Alps and bordered by the Cote d’Azzure of the Mediterranean sea, Toulon is a city approximately the size of Cork.

There’s more than a great climate to tempt visitors to Toulon. Nestled between a mountain range and a large bay, there is plenty to see and do in this small industrial port city.

There is an old town dating back to the Middle Ages, a harbour area with shops and restaurants and a new town home to the main square (Place de la Liberte). There are several beaches to choose from, daily markets and a cable car that will take you to the top of Mount Faron, overlooking Toulon.

Toulon is steeped in literature and art, probably most famously known as the location of the infamous prison,the”Bagne of Toulon” in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.

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 Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. 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.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

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
