Governing body

The Comité Territorial de Rugby de la Réunion is a committee under the umbrella of the French Rugby Federation which is the governing body for rugby union within Réunion.[1]

The committee is not affiliated to the IRB in its own right, but it is affiliated to Confederation of African Rugby (CAR), which is the regional governing body for Africa.


Rugby was first introduced to the Réunion by the French. Isolated in rugby terms, Réunion competes in the Africa Cup. More talented players tend to leave for Metropolitan France.
