  • Then, place to the practice of leisure rugby, accessible to everyone : it's a time to discover some basics and try this sport in the form of games, and especially in a good mood. No plating! This moment really wants to be accessible to everyone.
  • Of course, this activity cannot be completed without the 3e half time : a moment of sharing and exchange.

Rugby is to Gers what canelé is to Bordeaux. For its values ​​from the land, it is not surprising to see the emergence, over each decade, of nuggets formed in our clubs.
