The International Rugby Academy continues its development towards excellence! We are proud to announce the establishment of a partnership with the prestigious SAS Rugby academy located in Stellenboch, South Africa.

During our next summer rugby internship session which will take place in Toulouse in July 2021, SAS Rugby will look to send South African players and coaches to join the interns of the International Rugby Academy to participate in the training sessions and the life of the Promotion 2021.

On the other hand, 5 French players selected by the AIR will be offered 3 weeks of internship in South Africa from July 22 to August 08, 2021.

This partnership, which marks a strong step in AIR's international development, is part of a desire for exchanges between AIR Top coaches and SAS Rugby (Stellenbosch Academy of Sport Rugby) coaches, and this throughout of the year in order to collaborate and initiate synergies on innovative training, physical and mental preparation techniques oriented towards high performance and high level.
