29 April 2014, 12:59
Nairobi - Willy Ambaka's LOU Rugby have been promoted to the French Top 14 after a
31-13 bonus point win over Tarbes guaranteed them the Pro 2 title on
Saturday. Ambaka featured in this match, scoring his eighth try of the
LOU last played in the Top 14 in the
2011/12 season but finished bottom and were relegated. They were
previously French champions in 1932 and 1933 but have not been a force
to reckon with in the intervening years.They will be joined in the elite
league by a second club, who will emerge from the play-offs contested
by the second to fifth-placed teams.
The two promoted clubs will replace
already relegated Biarritz and one of Oyonnax, Perpignan and Bayonne,
who play their final matches of the season next weekend.
