Robert Adams (called Roy)
I played a lot of rugby at school, university and then for clubs,
initially in Northern Ireland and later in England where I played
(mostly) at number 10 for Worcester Warriors.
Close to the end of a successful career
(Chief Executive of a company called Building Design Partnership).
I moved to France with my French wife Pascale and our son Gabriel.
Shortly after arriving in Nantes 7 years ago, I started to play rugby
for the veterans team at Stade Nantais and became a coach in the Ecole
de Rugby (with Diploma from the Regional authority - Pays de La Loire
I also play touch rugby : a fast-developing sport because it does not
involve tackling - organized by Pays de La Loire Rugby. I have
recently started up as a coach, and player, for an adults touch rugby
session every Monday evening at Stade Nantais.
The majority of players have no previous rugby experience and social
connections have developed very quickly.
