The results speak for themselves: more than 80% of victories, Grand Slam, the longest series of invincibility in the history of the XV of France… There is no reason to modify this staff.

Present with the Blues during the Tournament

During the last Six Nations Tournament, the former president of the FFR had approached the Blues.

A speech which had been broadcast by the FFR, in which he had notably declared: “

Continue to give happiness.

That's better than saying we don't want to see them because we take 30 points... Because we've experienced that.

Today everything is beautiful.

Yes everything is beautiful, but we cried anyway.

I don't know if you remember, but we cried more often than we laughed.

But now we're laughing.

So kudos to you.
