Rugby: Why are the Springboks taking part in Racing 92 – MHR at the Paris Defense Arena?

The South African players were at the Paris Defense Arena to participate in the match between Racing 92 and Montpellier on the 8th day of the Top 14.

It’s like Hendre Pollard and Kobus Reinach are playing at home. This Saturday, 23 October, at the Paris Defense Arena, two South Africans, MHR and Racing 92, watched private spectators take their seats in the stands. The Springboks, on tour in Europe this fall, joined the meeting. Why ? To please François Stein, present to congratulate his two former clubs? Not only

Two years before the World Cup in France, the South African team took the opportunity to try and make their mark in the capital.

But most of all, after spending three months together to tour the British Lions and the Rugby Championship, the defending world champions made a detour through Paris to ease their access to the United Kingdom thereafter. As part of the autumn tour, Sia Colisi’s teammates will face Wales (6 November), Scotland (13 November) and England (20 November). Renach and Pollard, two residents of Montpellier, will take part in the tour.
