Rugby – Pro D2 – The president of Agen do not believe in a Pro D2 to 18 clubs

In an interview given to our colleagues at RMC Sport, the president of Agen, Jean-François Fonteneau, is back on the meeting between the Federation and the League, which took place on Tuesday. Before the stop of the Top 14, the SUA was 13th in the standings. According to him, the rise of two clubs in Federal 1 in Pro D2 (which would, therefore, from 16 to 18 teams) will not happen. The end of the current fiscal year “is going to be very chaotic following the times and the déconfinement even if there is a desire to finish the championship in one way or another. But the great principle of stay up to 30 clubs is one that will surely do act very, very quickly”, he states. It “does not believe” that there will not be two mounted Federal : “The president Bernard Laporte has been very clear about that. It has been in a logic of general interest. It has clarified things in relation to it. It was in a positive approach to amateur clubs to enhance the results and allow for climbs, but it is also aware of the impact on the Top 14 and the Pro D2, in particular in terms of timing with this chaotic recovery championship. We will find a consensus.”
