London Welsh are hosting Club Champagnat from Buenos Aires, Argentina and Llandovery College, the current Welsh College champions, at Old Deer Park next Thursday. Club Champagnat previously came to London Welsh two years ago with two squads and played a London Welsh U18 team and a Middlesex County A at u18.
This year they have over 120 in their touring party, 100 of which are players.
The first match will involve a Champagnat B team playing our Colts (U18), kicking off at 12pm.
At 2pm, Champgnat A will then be playing Llandovery College in what is expected to be a classic encounter between the best of Argentina and the best of Wales.
Both matches will have the full Old Deer Park experience, with a match day announcer and society referees. The bar will be open from 11am and food will be served from the hatch. Post match festivities for the players will be held in the Pagoda room .
Come down to support this great day of rugby as we expect the Argentinian support in the stand to be lively and loud. National anthems will be played before both matches.
A fantastic international event not to be missed at our club.
