On Wednesday, the stop was toulouse, in particular with an afternoon of entertainment that brought together 350 children and girls of the pole Hopes to Jolimont under the auspices of Frederic Michalak, who returned for the occasion in his hometown. The opener to the 77 selections in Blue, who will celebrate on Monday its 35 years, is currently in Lyon, the leader of the Top 14, and will decide “in December,” if it stops or not his rich career at the end of the season.

Why did you become an ambassador for the French bid ?

The world Cup is the greatest competition that exists. France has the opportunity to host the most beautiful nations in the rugby. I was forced to hire me.

You were present in London on 25 September for the grand oral…

Yes. There are three candidates with a very good record. An audit carried out by an external company to World Rugby, but mandated by the organization, will be sent to all the federations to help them in their choice. This will strengthen our case.

What are the advantages of France ?

Already, there is much talk of infrastructure. Then, the financial side, important to develop rugby in the world. Finally, the rugby is very implanted on our land, in the region of toulouse, for example, where there are more than 40,000 licensed (50.600 according to the FFR), in the small villages and in large cities. We want to see this competition in our territories.

Obtaining the world Cup can it help to stem the decline in the number of licensees ?

I think that this decline is due more to the problems the extra sports and health of the players. If one gets the organisation of the world Cup, this may increase the number of graduates, but it should not bet on it.

I have no comment to make on this subject. It must be left to unfold in the investigation.
