Tahiti two-time defending champion and two-time Pacific champion will face Le Mee-Melun in the French Cup on Feb 26th. The team hopes to make a good run in this event like they did last year. Unfortunatly, the French Cup has been divided in two competition: The Busnel Trophy and the French Cup, with only the 64 best french team are playing the Busnel Trophy. So the players from Tahiti would never play a first division team. Aorai's opponent, Le Mee-Melun, is currently playing in the french 4th division Pool D with a 5-12 record.
There is 5 games to win to reach the final which will be held at Bercy, in Paris, a 15000 seats stadium.
