Have been watching Top 14 on ESPN, by the looks of it this is a very strong squad. Basterau has not had the most impressive season, too many handling errors.

Act your shoe size not your age!

look at that list and tell me French clubs do well because of the lack of salary cap rather than having good local players to call on!

yes but if you look at, they are an aging bunch aren't they. although they have parra etc, there is a lot of old stuff in there.

They are the French.

World beaters and a total joy to watch one week, hopeless the next.

Whatever the quality of the team on paper, it will be the top 3 inches on the day that dictates whether they win or not.

I love their attacking flair, their national anthem is probably the most motivational, but they are definitely beatable on a bad day.

Interesting that they have Harinordoquy on the bench - he was MOM against England in the World Cup IIRC.
