They are not on the soil of Avignon every weekend due to professional commitments in football and rugby, but when they can they make a little detour. This Saturday evening, on the occasion of the Elite Rugby League championship between SO Avignon and Albi, Samuel Gigot and Benjamin Garcia were present at the Avignon Sports Park.
Back to basics especially for the Olympique de Marseille defender who experienced, on this same green rectangle, his first start in the professional world for AC Arles Avignon against Châteauroux on Friday 25 September 2013 in Ligue 2 as a defensive midfielder. The truce this weekend requires, the resident of Avignon took advantage of this break to come with his father and mother to watch his older brother Tony, who has been playing for Albigens for two seasons, win against SOA (24-12). The latter also scored two tries against his training club.
