A herd of 25 players from the Mackie Mammoths will be heading to France this week as part of a tour that will see them play three games.
The team which departs Thursday August 27 will be away for five days heading to the Bordeaux region of France.
Staying at a town called Monflanquin the team will take on the club of the same thing as well as Cancon and Villereal.
After an exciting year for the Mammoths who played more regular games than before and increased player numbers the tour is being seen as the pinnacle.
A hard game is expected both on and off the pitch.
Mackie Mammoths return to Stonehaven Tuesday morning September 1.
