French Parcours

Publié le 2023-10-05

LegendaryPlays showcases a selection of 21 players who are icons of world rugby. Retired or at the end of their careers, all these players have played in a Rugby World Cup and in the TOP 14. Passing through Toulon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Clermont, Stade Français or Racing, relive with us the most beautiful actions of these mythical players of the 21ᵉ century.

This tribute collection will take you back in time to discover all the legends who have passed through the world's finest championship: the TOP 14!

Jonny Wilkinson, the British sharpshooter

Against the Stade Toulousain in the 2010/11 season, Sir Jonny Wilkinson showed us his exceptional footwork, slamming home a drop-goal from over 50 meters out to level the match. Rugby's iconic number 10, "Wilko" as he is known, has won everything in his career. World champion with England in 2003, winner of four 6 Nations tournaments, double European champion and French champion with the RCT. Sir Jonny is rightly regarded as one of the greatest rugby players of all time.

Dan Carter, pure class

‍Opposed to the Stade Français on the round 18 of the 2015/16 championship season, Carter was at the conclusion of a sensational move, initiated by his international teammate Joe Rokocoko. Like his English counterpart, the Blacks' No.10 has a wealth of honours to his name. Two-time world champion (2011 and 2015), 6 Tri-Nations, 2 Rugby Championship titles, and two-time French champion with USAP and the Racing, Dan Carter is the highest points scorer in international rugby history (1,598). In short, the GOAT of rugby.

Vincent Clerc, the French finisher

During the Classico against the Stade Français, Vincent Clerc showed off his speed by taking down the entire Parisian defense. The second-highest scorer in the history of Les Bleus, the second-highest scorer in the history of the European Cup and the highest scorer in the history of the French championship, with 101 tries scored, Vincent Clerc is a serial finisher. The former Stade Toulousain player is considered to be the best French winger of all time, with phenomenal speed and a fiery touch.

Matt Giteau, the helmeted kangaroo

Against Castres Olympique in the 2012-13 season, Matt Giteau intercepted a ball in midfield and used his sticks to finish in the opposition's in-goal. Giteau is an all-round player, a reliable goalscorer, a skilled ball handler, a tough defender and an outstanding finisher, and he made a major contribution to RCT's historic European Cup treble between 2013 and 2015. He also won the Top 14 in 2014 and was a two-time World Cup finalist in 2003 and 2015. Quite a career, wouldn't you say?

Sergio Parisse, the most French of Italians

During the Paris derby between the Stade Français and the Racing in 2017, Sergio Parisse intercepted Carter's pass in midfield and extended his stride to flatten the ball between the posts. What a run for a number 8! Parisse is class above all else, a complete No. 8. Twice French champion with the Stade Français, Sergio was awarded the trophy for the best player in the Top 14 during the 2014/2015 season. He played in no fewer than 5 World Cups with Italy between 2003 and 2019, including 3 with the captain's armband. A player that the whole of France will find hard to forget...
