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.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

Rugby’s Blame Game (Thu, 12 Apr 2018)

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

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
