Tribute to Pierre Camou

Rugby Europe is deeply saddened to hear of the death of Pierre Camou, former President of the FFR and also former Vice President and Treasurer of the FIRA-AER.

Pierre Camou had been a great actor of FIRA-AER History for a long time. 

Before being elected as FFR President, he was involved in our Association as Treasurer, then Vice-President. 

He always defended the idea and values of our association and battled with the IRB and the other institutions (6 Nations Ltd) to boost the growth of Rugby in Europe. 

He attended all meetings and fought for his convictions throughout all these years using subtile and fine french language to achieve his ideas. 

He was always present in European competitions to support French teams but also to promote the importance of development of rugby in Europe. 

At this difficult moment, all Rugby Europe family would like to address his deepest sympathies to his family
