Stade Montois is a French rugby union team that will play the 2008-09 season in the Top 14, the first level of the country's professional league system, after winning the 2007-08 promotion playoffs in the second-level Rugby Pro D2.

They were founded in 1908 and play in yellow and black. They are based in Mont-de-Marsan, the capital of the Landes "département", in Aquitaine, and play at the Stade Guy Boniface.

History

Stade Montois is a multi-sports club (28 sections) but its rugby team has always been its flagship. After winning a few regional titles between the two world wars, it reached the top of French club rugby four times in 15 years. It lost its first three French championship finals to Castres Olympique in 1949 (3-14, in a replay, after the original final had ended in a 3-3 draw), to FC Lourdes in 1953 (16-21), and to Racing Club de France in 1959 (3-8). Their finest hour came in 1963 in an all Landes-final, a legendary derby which people still talk about, against US Dax won by the Yellow and Black 9-6. They had finally won one, whereas their Dax neighbours would lose all five finals they would play in…

Although Stade Montois was never a truly dominant force in French rugby, it was famous for its spectacular attacking style of play and nursed some of France’s finest international players: the Boniface brothers (André and Guy, who died in a car accident on Jan. 1, 1968), Thomas Castaignède, Christian Darrouy, Benoît Dauga, Laurent Rodriguez. Former Leicester Tigers and Fiji scrum-half wizard Waisale Serevi also played for them.
