So, we're taking on Stade and Leicester Tigers, home and away.

Trip to Paris might be nice, but equally the Leicester match should be a cracker.

Something to look forward to. Sure we have our sleeper agent also known as the Connacht Clan French Attache (CC) to guide us around Paris!!
Hopefully with some luck we'll be in Paris sipping a few €10 beers watching some live Rugby!! Saying that wouldn't mind an away trip yo Leicester either.

Looking forward to seeing you here! Stade is located in the 16th arrondissement beside Parc des Princes and Roland Garros in the south-west of the city, which is largely residential. There are plenty of accomodation options nearby and the stadium is well connected to public transport with two metro lines (lines 9 & 10) running close-by. There are some reasonably decent bars and restaurants close to the stadium but EUR 10 is cheap beer in this part very expensive of the city! There are plenty of bars in stadium, and match days are generally lively, but as always in France they haven't quite mastered the art of serving large amounts of pints to thirsty fans in a timely way so queues tend to be long.

If anyone needs any guidance once dates are announced drop me a message.

It's a short walk to the ground from there with plenty of bars and restos closeby. Nice market on Sunday mornings if you're interested.

Any interest in a Group block booking for tickets (ala what we have done in the past - Montpelier was last time I think)

Just chucking this idea out there.
With our game at 13:00 and finishing at approximately 14:45 and the Racing92 v Northampton game on at 15:15 (about 20 mins away by taxi)
Anyone want to try something really special and go to both games.
We might miss a few minutes of the start of the Racing92 match but when are you going to get the chance again.

To be fair, I would urge some caution, 20 minutes to Nanterre on a Sunday afternoon is very ambitious even with a waiting taxi or Uber. The shortest route, via the Bois de Boulogne, is closed on Sundays. The alternative route via the speed-restricted Périphérique meets massive roadworks at Porte Maillot and Sunday shopping at La Defense.
