Why is rugby extremely popular in the south of France but not in the north ?

With the exception of Paris. I heard it was something to do with Vichy France or something

    Football seems to dominate. I don't know why.

    Although I'm French and it's true rugby is very popular in the south of France where I live, I can't answer this question.

    Anyway I found this: https://www.myfrenchlife.org/2017/04/26/french-rug...
