Fixture Focus: Gloucester RFC’s Visit to Biarritz RFC
On the weekend of the 23rd/24th/25th January, the Cherry and Whites will travel to the unique rugby climate of the French Basque region to take on the European rugby giants Biarritz Olympique RFC. To experience the electric atmosphere and hopefully witness Gloucester RFC topple the 2005/06 European Heineken Cup winners, why not travel with Burleigh Travel Supporters Tours for a weekend to remember.
While Gloucester RFC have never faced Biarritz in the Heineken Cup before, Dean Ryan, the Gloucester RFC head coach is quoted as saying:
Biarritz are a hugely powerful and organised side, have a history in the competition that would be the envy of a lot of clubs and contested a final only three seasons ago. Their threat, particularly at home, is an obvious one.
They have a tremendous pedigree and their home record is as good as anything in the competition. It will be a huge examination for us but one we will relish as we develop as a side.
Both games will generate huge interest from the supporters, the rivalry is fierce and I think it will be a great advert for the competition.
