Some French memorabilia again... A calendar of French Championship 1928-29 offered by winemaker BYRRH near Perpignan.
Motto reads "Generous Wine with Quinine - Recommended to Families and Sportsmen"... There's a book to write about the relationships between rugby and alcoholic beverages - at least in France!
From a rugby standpoint, French championship 1928-29 (Pool round A : 8 pools x 5 clubs - Pool round B : 8 pools x 3 clubs - QF / SF / Final ) went to Quillan... so far, the smallest town (3,500 hab.) to have won French Championship... a team set-up by local entrepreneur Jean Bourel accused of poaching players in rival clubs, as well as by-passing strict amateurism rules... but that's another story!
