Chaired by Erwann Rigoussen and surrounded by a solid team of volunteers, the PRC is made up of 45 players, with an average age of 23 and a title of 3rd series Brittany champion.
An anniversary in the traditions, affiliations and values of rugby
“30 years is something to celebrate, the health context of recent months has forced us to postpone the commemoration of this anniversary for several months, but here we are! Two days of celebration to rediscover rugby in its traditional form, but also in a recent form which is that of touch rugby: rugby open to all, ”welcomes the president.
“The history of the oval made in Ploemeur was born under the initiative of the first president, Didier Hamon, and a core of enthusiasts who will carry out a rugby school project in Ploemeur. Very quickly, the volunteers as well as the parents of the young players did not spare their efforts so that the club reaches its cruising speed. There have been great, very positive results, but also with ups and downs, ”recalls Jacques Jakubowicz, former president, number 2 and current manager of the rugby school. He will leave his place to Philippe Gaucher, then Erwann Rigoussen.
