THE FRENCH Top 14 reaches its climax at the Stade de France on Saturday 31 May – and you could be there!
TV5MONDE are giving away a VIP trip to the Top 14 final 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.

Plus, you’ll get to sit with 2003 World Cup winner and founder of the StandUp Foundation Ben Cohen during the match – someone sure to be able to offer plenty of insight to the action.
