Like an air of renewal at the Sporting-Club nègrepelissien where, obviously, everything is changing to start again better while remaining in the tradition. A first presentation gathering, not at the Jean-Fleury stadium, but at the La Cuisine art and design center at the Château de Nègrepelisse. An unusual setting for rugby and very pleasant under a hot sun. In terms of changes, there is first of all the arrival of Olivier Belaygue to the presidency, he who played rugby for young people in Saint-Etienne-de-Tulmont, wishing, he says, that “the players burst on the ground, giving pleasure to the supporters, in order to find the past of Nègrepelisse”. Mayor Morgan Tellier sent a similar message “I wish the best to the club, which has its place in Fédérale 2, with players who love the jersey and Nègrepelisse.” New also among the coaches with the arrival of two new coaches coming out of retirement, Thierry Escur and Eric Rodrigues. “Titi” Escur, former USM player, has in the past coached Cahors, Montech and RC Montauban. Éric Rodrigues, trader in Caussade, has a fine rugby past. The coaches aim to do “better than last year, in a pool where the French champion and a few other big names were summed up”, which qualifies the assessment. After the presentation of this new organization, it was time to introduce the recruits (there are still a few other possible recruits) where everyone obviously enjoyed meeting or discovering each other.
