But with 70 seniors, 140 children at rugby school, two ladies teams (senior and junior), the club has 350 members. “This places us in fourth place in the Landes behind Mont-de-Marsan, Dax and Tyrosse.

He also started the competition very well by winning against ELO (24-23). Willy Lévéjacq, president of Marsacq XV, minimizes this victory: “It’s a bit of a hold-up. But for our team, which is at the level of many new players, it’s a good little game at the start of the season, with a win at the end that doesn’t spoil anything. »
