Montauban back in the big time?

The Sapiac based rugby club has suffered hard times these last few years: relegation from the Top 14 and banishment to the third tier due to financial irregularities. The club was re-formed as US Montauban (instead of MTG XV) and four years ago was promoted to Pro Div2. This season they finished third and therefore will play-off against Agen on Sunday. The match is on the Bordeaux ground where they won their only top tier championship, 50 years ago. Memories of an unsuccessful but exciting European Cup campaign in 2008 are enthusing players and supporters alike. The match can be seen live on France 3 from 15h15 on Sunday.
