Stade Français and RC Toulon have confirmed the creation of a trophy bearing the name of Christophe Dominici.
Stade Français Paris and RC Toulon have answered the call. Former international winger Christophe Dominici, who died on November 24, left his mark on both clubs. Following the announcement of the disappearance of the one who won five French league titles and four 5 or 6 Nations tournaments, the RCT supporters group The Sons of Besagne launched the idea of a trophy which would be put into play on the occasion of the confrontations between the Parisian club and the Toulon club and which would symbolically bear the name of “Christophe Dominici Trophy”, an initiative that very quickly received the support of former players from both clubs, including Sergio Parisse. The Sons of Besagne had very quickly communicated on the support also given by the two clubs to this initiative, without it having materialized until now.
