The Brumbies have announced that a mysterious French organisation is paying for the team to hit the road for a development tour of France!
- The schedule will see the ACT-based side take on French Top 14 Champions, Perpignan, as well as matches against Toulon, Bayonne and Bourgoin-Jallieu.
The tour – completely financed by a French organisation arranging the tour and the participating French clubs – will begin on Friday, 24 July against Bourgoin-Jallieu in Lyon before taking on Bayonne (Tuesday, 28 July), Perpignan (Friday, 31 July) and Toulon (Thursday, 6 August).
While the ACT squad for the tour will be named next week it will include CA Brumbies contracted players (not involved with the Wallabies), Brumbies Academy representatives and selected club rugby players.
Touring France in July. It’s a hard, hard life as a professional footballer. But it won’t do the team any harm at all to develop a touring culture.
