Le Coupe de Maire
Alexandria v. Caen, France
Alexandria Select XV versus Caen Select XV - a home and away series between the best rugby players the two cities can muster.
Caen, like Dundee, Scotland is a sister city to Alexandria and just as crazy about their rugby as Dundee. Alexandria Rugby is poised to develop a similar rugby challenge with our French friends - one we're dubbing Le Coupe de Maire!
We're planning an early September, 2010 trip to northwestern France to open a new chapter in what's become a wonderful rugby and community event. What's more, this time around we're likely to add a top-level women's match to expand the offering and improve the showcase. Caen's women's rugby is quite good so our ladies will have their hands full but it will undoubtedly be another terrific opportunity to showcase top rugby here in Alexandria.
Check back frequently for more information on this exciting development. We'll update this page as more info on the match become available. Interested players (women and men) should visit our Prospective Player Registration page and give us your information. We'll get back in touch with you soon after receiving your information.
