Calmont. The rugby party, before returning to the field

It has been three years since Pierre Marrot and Christophe Doumeng, the co-presidents of HLXV (Hers-Lauragais XV), wanted to bring together the members of the club for a festive evening.

It is now chosen with the bodega organized last Saturday by the Players’ Association but open to all. Pétanque tournament in the afternoon, bouncy castle for the children, bandas de Foix as an aperitif, meal and, to finish, an evening hosted by a DJ from the club.

For a first, it is a success that generated more than 200 participants and allowed to give a positive and attractive image of the club.

On the meadow on September 18

Now is the time to move on to more serious things and to think about next season. Training has already resumed since July 6, on Wednesday and Friday, with Eric Serres, the new coach whose career has already led to Tarascon and Mazères and who will have the delicate mission of preparing the team in its confrontation with the others. Regional 2 clubs which include clubs from the 1st and 2nd series (R1 bringing together Honor and Promotion Honor, R3 series 3 and 4).

Engaged in the senior Occitanie championship, Hers Lauragais XV will have as opponents in pool 3, AS Barguillère, Stade Lavelanet, RC Mirepoix, AC Labastide-Beauvoir, XV de la Save, Entente Seilh -Aussonne-Fenouillet, Toulouse UC, Villemur-Fronton and Cœur de Lomagne, nothing but beautiful people…

As for the workforce, although everything is not yet finalized, some departures have been recorded. However, the return of former juniors and the arrival of new players from outside will make it possible to form a single team of 30-35 elements (but no reserve team).

The Ligue Occitanie has not yet revealed the schedule of matches for the season, but the first match will take place on September 18.
