Here’s your chance to win a VIP trip to Paris
THE TOP 14 Semi-finals take place this weekend – Toulon host Racing Metro on Friday night before Montpellier take on Castres on the Saturday afternoon – and you could be in Paris to see the winners of those matches compete for the Bouclier de Brennus. Plus, you could enjoy all the final action in the company of 2003 World Cup winner Ben Cohen.
TV5MONDE are giving away a VIP trip to the Top 14 final on Saturday 31 May in a fantastic competition, and given the number of players from the British Isles now plying their trade across the Channel, there are sure to be some familiar faces in action.
The prize includes two VIP tickets to the final, return travel from the UK, two nights’ accommodation in central Paris and all transfers. For your chance to win this great prize, enter here. The closing date is Monday 19 May 2014.
TV5MONDE, a global TV channel crossing language barriers and spanning cultural divides, is proud to support the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation. Former England and Lions wing Cohen says: “I’ve heard from many fans and friends how bullying has hurt them. That’s why I founded the world’s first foundation dedicated to supporting organisations that fight bullying and promote equality.
“Becoming a rugby champion requires a strong body; removing bullying from schools and sports requires all of us to have strong characters.”
This month TV5MONDE is showing Top 14 matches live. Here are the key fixtures:
Fri 16 May – Toulon v Racing Metro (7.45pm)
