History[edit]

Founded in 1947 RC Salon lifted their first silverware in 1959 when they won the National 2 (now called National Division 1) title beating Le Soler in the final 21-10. It would be another 17 years before another trophy was won and once again it was the National 2 league title this time following a 13-2 win against US Entraigues XIII . After promotion to the 2nd tier the club became a permanent if not a successful club in the Elite Two Championship. Until that is the mid nineties when from nowhere the club won back to back titles. In 95/96 they beat Tonneins XIII 30-16 and the following season they beat Saint-Cyprien 34-8. The club is currently back playing in the 3rd tier[1]
