“I apologize to the Federation”

During a press conference held in Jean-Alric in the early afternoon, the president confirmed that the final would finally be played in Clermont-Ferrand, at the Marcel-Michelin stadium, this Sunday, June 12.

A decision made after discussions with the FFR, in particular with a dialogue led by Jean Bessière, president of the association, and thanks to a quadripartite meeting between the presidents of Toulouse, Aurillac, Lyon and Clermont.

“I wanted to put an end to the controversies, too violent for my liking, which first arose as a result of a statement made by the club and for which I apologize to the Federation,” the leader asked in the preamble.

It is not our role to attack the Federation for a decision that, of course, may seem unfair to us, but in any case we have absolutely no dispute with the FFR, with whom we have excellent relations. There is no reason to suggest that we are not loved.

“There is no dispute between Walter Olombel and me”

“Somewhere, [la polémique] it may have been good because it put some pressure, but it has to be done with respect for our institutions and those who work there. Rugby is above all respect for others. That said, there is no dispute between myself and Walter Olombel and I can understand that at some point, those with dirty hands go crazy, as they say.

Going back to the origins of the choice of Nîmes, linked to Toulouse’s request to be able to play their two teams (Crabos and Espoirs) on the same ground, Christian Millette played appeasement, judging such a request legitimate.

But the choice of the city of Gard caused misunderstanding regarding the distance between Toulouse and Aurillac, which could legitimately give hope of a final within a radius of 150 km around the city of Géraldienne, which elected officials (Mayor Pierre Mathonier first, the deputy Vincent Descoeur and then the president of the Departmental Council Bruno Faure) advanced in turn, seizing the president of the FFR or the ministry to try to influence the decision, at the same time as an outcry from supporters.

“The club made a mistake, I take responsibility. We didn’t have to get into an argument and then everyone’s work made it possible to hold the match in Clermont-Ferrand.”

“I thank Jean Bessière who worked on the associative part. I wish that we have a positive message to pass. Aurillac is as appreciated by the FFR as the other clubs. May our public also think so”, recommended the president.

Christian Millette insisted at length on the understanding expressed by the president of Toulouse Didier Lacroix to get out of this situation, accepting the celebration of the match in Clermont.

In fact, the Stade Toulousain retains the possibility of having its two teams on the same ground, and with a distance that is the distance that Aurillac had to travel to reach Nîmes. For Lyon, who face Toulouse in the Crabos final, the choice of Michelin also seems like a more acceptable solution. The times must be the same as those planned in Nîmes: the Crabos final as the opening curtain at 2:00 p.m., and the Espoirs final at 4:00 p.m.

Adrian Smith extends one year, three friendlies for this summer

In addition, Cantal’s coach indicated that the club had just extended hooker Adrian Smith for one season, leaving the door open for a possible retraining inside the Stadium once his career was over.

In addition, a friendly match will face Lyon and Aurillac in Cantal, but in the summer of 2023 and that follows the transfer of Beqa Saghinadze to LOU last summer.

The president also made it known that the price of tickets at the Jean-Alric would not go up for the coming season, and that the club intended to increase its efforts in terms of entertainment in the stadium and attract more young people and women. lair of the Stade Aurillacois, remembering that the latter already had very preferential rates.
