2012 Spring Tour - Australia v France in Paris
|Tour Dates||9-11 November, 2012|
|Match Date||Saturday 10 November, 2012|
|Venue||Stade de France, Paris|
|Tour Duration||3 Days/2 Nights|
After a shortened Spring Tour in 2011 due to the Rugby World Cup, it's back to 4 Tests in November/December 2012. The Qantas Wallabies' first stop in Paris will see them take on Les Bleus in front of 80,000 spectators as it will no doubt be a sell out.
We last took on France in Paris during the 2010 Spring Tour and our boys blew them away with an amazing 59 - 16 victory. All Aussie fans will be hoping for a favorable start to their campaign with another convincing win to set the tone for the following 3 tests. It will be a tough challenge against the Rugby World Cup runner-ups, but it promises to be one entertaining spectacle.
Our packages for the France v Australia clash in Paris includes two nights accommodation at a range of hotels in Paris with a reserved seating for the match.
Twin share prices for this event start from just $485 per person twin/double share. Extra nights and single prices are available through the booking process.
Our match tickets are reserved and guaranteed supplied from the Australian Rugby Union.
A seating map indicating the category location of the tickets will be available soon.
The city of romance is also, for lovers of rugby, one of the most popular destinations on the rugby travel map.
The magnificent sights, sounds and shops make this our most popular rugby destination. Spend weeks or years dawdling along the Seine, in the Tuileries gardens, through the left bank, savouring lunch at a café, down the Champs Elysées, amongst the flea markets or in the shops – Paris will take your breath away and draw you back time and time again.
Stade de France was built for the 1998 football World Cup and was the setting for the nation’s greatest sporting achievement – the 3-0 win over Brazil in the final. The stunning venue had been officially opened in January of that year when the hosts beat Spain 1-0 at football. A month later, France beat England 24-17 in the first rugby international there.
With a capacity of 80,000, it replaced the Parc des Princes as the home of French rugby, although the old stadium is still used by Paris St Germain football club. Located a few kilometres north of Paris in St Denis, it played host to the 2007 Rugby World Cup final on October 20, when South Africa were crowned champions with victory over England.
