TORRINGTON Colts did their bit for the entente cordiale when they went on their own Tour de France.
A 16-man party flew to the South of France to play Rugby Olympique Agde at the Stade Michel Millet
Torrington suffered a little from the acclimatisation activities the night before, but it took Agde 20 minutes before they broke over the line to score. By half time the score was 20-0.
Torringtonâ€™s defence improved in the second half, limiting Agde to just one more try.
James McLeod ensured Torrington did not come away empty handed by scoring a try for the tourists, whose man of the match was Will Andrews.
Following the game a reception was held in the club and Torrington were presented with a trophy of Alexander the Great, which has significant historical significance to Agde.
â€œWe would like to thank the French for their hospitality and efforts in making the tour happen in particular Max Isidro, Mike and Julia Corrick,â€ said Torrieâ€™s Paul Banfield.
