Agen and Biarritz ready for battle in Paris
June 8, 2002
The tennis final between the Williams sisters isn't the only family battle in Paris today. Back-row brothers Thierry and Mathieu Lievremont go head to head tonight at the Stade de France as Agen and Biarritz play for le Bouclier de Brennus, in the final of the French national championship.
Thierry plays alongside national team hero Serge Betsen for three-time winners Biarritz, who also include Wallaby wing Joe Roff at centre. Agen, eight times champions, will be seeking their first triumph since 1988 in front of a crowd of more than 70,000.
