the Rugby club of the Pays de Fougères (RCPF) develop the feminization of rugby. Since the sponsorship of the section by Marie-Aurélie Castel, a young international player from Rennes, the group has gradually expanded.

As Ludovic Quinton, head of the women’s group, says:

The objective is to grow the section and, in some time, move on to rugby at 15.

The women received their jersey in the club colors (yellow and green) and took their first steps in competition last weekend at Concarneau against the Brest Stadiumin a 2 x 7 minute rugby 7s match.

Next weekend, they will play a friendly match at 10 to Combourg. At the start of the school year, the official debut will be made at 10 in a regional championship of around ten teams bringing together Brittany and Pays de la Loire. Managers are still asking to recruit to expand the group.
