Best rugby moment: There's a saying applicable to all sports but even more to rugby "Winners are simply willing to do what losers won’t".

We showed up late at the game (no warm-up) with only 15 players. Our captain Florian Letourneau got injured before half-time but we did manage to get the W. It came with sacrifice and unselfishness.

The best thing about rugby is...: A lot of expats land in Luxembourg and look to build their network. With RCL, and it is the case with most rugby clubs, you will enter a family. In a context of intensity and sometimes fear, you create the strongest bonds. Who will win the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan?: Gotta go with the local team and underdogs even though they never passed the pool stage : Japan.
