French Rugby Club is a new website dedicated to coverage of Top14, arguably the most exciting and dynamic domestic league within Europe.
Current champions Toulouse are the acknowledged giants of European rugby, and the league’s overall standing has again been confirmed with the signings of such world stars as Dan Carter and Sonny ‘Bill’ Williams confirming its pull for players from both codes – Union and League.
Here at French Rugby Club we aim to give you, wherever you are, the latest news and results, as well as match reports, features and in-depth player profiles.
Website editor Colin Spiro has been a sports journalist with various publications for the past 16 years, having worked his way up through regional and national English newspapers and media, including work with the Cambridge Evening News, The Mirror, the Daily Telegraph, Channel 4 and other sporting publications.
He now lives in the south of France, the heartland of French rugby, and felt compelled to improve the level of coverage for English speakers after being imbued with the love and passion for the sport.
As French legend Jean-Pierre Rives so adroitly observed:
"The whole point of rugby is that it is, first and foremost, a state of mind, a spirit."
