New Zealand will face the XV of SC Brivadois on November 26

As part of the fall tour, New Zealand will play a friendly match against SC Brivadois on November 26.

Against all odds, Sporting Privadois will host New Zealand’s standard rugby team on Saturday 26 November at their home stadium. The All Blacks have already announced they want to play several minor friendlies during the fall tour of Europe. The players and coaches were notified yesterday. Tickets are already sold out, and the city is in turmoil. Remember, the last time Ferns players went to Haute-Loire was in 2004 with a friendly match against Poussins de Langeac (the latter lost 287-0).

Remember that SC Brivadois is currently playing in the Tournament d’Honneur of the regional championship Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Co-chairs Jean-Marc Bonnevoy and Laurent Mansot show their optimism mixed with a slight trepidation: “We are a little afraid that the All Blacks will demolish our players. We are amateurs, not brutes of a high international level,” explains Mr. Bonnevoy. On the players side, we show joy and the same caution. In the event of the match, it will be held next to six ambulances and firefighters will be mobilized, so everyone will be able to participate in the celebration with complete peace of mind.
