Jacquie & Michel said in a statement that they felt they shared similar values with the club.

"Commitment, power, endurance and vigour are all values that Jacquie & Michel share with (Carcassonne coach) Christian Labit's men."

In terms of generating interest and publicity for Carcassone, fair to say it has been a success!

They needed that money shot. Should give them a bit more staying power and a chance to take up a good position on tha table. With a bit of luck and some self control they won't blow it all prematurely.

Not strictly on theme with this thread but was following the Irish connections in Pro D2 Semi-final games over the weekend.

The biggest link is that with Brive, coached by Jeremy Davidson and with Stuart Olding playing at 12 and former Ulster player, Rory Scholes at full-back. Brive qualified well in their S/F against Breton newcomers Vannes, who surprised mych fancied Mont de Marson in the q/f. Brive had a full house for a televised game yesterday and noisy support. Olding looked a class act and set up two tries in the second-half to see them home. Dan Tuohy played for Vannws and was 'starred' in Midi Olympique this morning for his peeformance.

The other finalist, Basques Aviron Bayonnaise, won their semi the hard way by coming from behind at Oyannex to win 34-38. Former French Forwards Coach Yannick Bru is the Bayonne head coach and the rugby headlines today have christened him "French Rugby's Jurgen Klopp".

Very impressive performances and a good Pro D2 final in propect next Sunday in Pau

And the Basques are back! Pro D2 champions for 2019 are Bayonne who win 19-21 with 7 penalties away to Brive. Brive had enough opportinities to win this but were ill-disciplined in defence and Bustos Moyanes took advantage with the placed ball.

Brive will have another chance against Grenoble but the good news for the South-West is that everyone gets to visit BaB next Season.
