I speak with France's most capped player, Fabien Pelous, The lock who made 118 appearances for Les Bleus and He captained his country 42 times and won four Five or Six Nations grand slams in 1997, 1998, 2002, and 2004 and the Heineken Cup with Toulouse in 2003 and 2005. Fabien never won the World Cup, although he made it to the final in 1999, losing to Australia after a memorable 43-31 semi-final victory against New Zealand. He reached the semi-finals twice in 2003 and 2007, both times losing out to England. He talks about the semi-final in the Telstra Stadium in 2003 against England, his friendship with Christophe Dominici, and his opponent, Martin Johnson, and more. I would like to say a BIG Thank you to my Franco-British friend, Tom Dixon who kindly translated my chat with him.
Mike and I also preview the Top 14 this weekend and "The Classique " between Bordeaux vs Toulouse! Enjoy French Rugby CONNECTIONS Podcast, the Rugby Podcast with the French Flair, and a je ne sais quoi:-)
