Rugby is one of France’s most popular sports and the youth game is strong around Paris, which is where we base our groups. Working closely with our fixture agent who has links with most rugby clubs in and around the capital, we have the best chance of matching you against teams of the same level. When you’re not on the pitch, inspire your students with a tour of the Stade de France, home of the French national team.
