The second game was a lot more competitive against RC Lege Cap Ferret and the XV were only leading 10-0 at half-time before running in four tries late on to secure a 45-0 win.
The third game, and the first in Biarritz, was against the Bayonne RC whose first team are in the top three in France. Their youth team were French Champions and in a tense and, at times, physical battle the side secured an 18-7 victory.
