Petanque: International are needed in New Caledonia

This weekend was raced one of the largest competitions of bowls of the year: "The Caledonian Petanque" at Boulari. For the occasion of the high-level international made the trip as Rock (Three times world champion, eleven times European champion and six-time champion France.) Or Robineau (4 times winner of the Marseillaise the most prestigious competition of the world.)



This is also the trio Rocher, and Robineau Usai owed in triples for the second consecutive time at the Caledonian Petanque. In Caledonians is Tuiseka Alex, Kate and Kaikilekofo Sosefo Totini that stand before the international trio. They start the tournament on the right foot but soon their lack of stamina and the establishment of the international game will default to the Caledonians.

The competition brought together a total of 800 players! The level rises, the New Caledonia attracts top international players, Pétanque is a sport on the rise on the Rock!
