Don't talk to me about the integrity of the game when it's simply about more money and greed, there is no such thing as honour and honesty or love of the game in France now, nor in England as you have let your clubs suck the blood and money dry for years until now the money is gone you come and provoke us who have tried to keep our finances in order. England have 70,000 registered players have confounded modern science by making a complete ******** of their national team and their clubs while other countries with far less have managed much more.

    Wake up France. Mon Dieu! Think of the poor children
    Who burnt Jeanne d'Arc? Who exiled Napoleon? Who sank those ships at Mers-el-Kebir...?

      Burger then got 8 for leaving his fingerprints on the back of Luke Fitz's eye-socket.

          Pretty funny. But it's ironic because we (the egocentric french) always try to develop the rugby around the world. We invented the world cup. We pushed to have an european cup. We pushed to have Italy in the 6 nations. We pushed for the integration of Argentina in the 4 nations. Our "diabolic' clubs have lots of players from Georgia, Roumania, Russia, Pacific Island.And the FFR help their Union with money, equipment and send them coaches to help them. And you?

            Not 60% of french. Only 50% and it concern players coming from the french club's academy. They are often french, but this is not mandatory ( ex: Armitage is JIFF)

                You did not invent the World Cup. It was the Aussies and Kiwis, copying rugby league. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histo...ugby_World_Cup

                The European Cup was set running by Tommy Kiernan, and was the idea of the late Vernon Pugh QC; your new best mates the English didn't even join in initially. http://www.irishrugby.ie/news/7007.php

                The push to bring Argentina into the 4N was at the instigation of Syd Millar. Rugby was brought there by the English and the great South African coach Izzie van Heerden developed it.

                The Kiwis brought rugby to the PIs; the largest Polynesian city is Auckland. You then pillage them for Kolpak players. The greatest French contribution to the Pacific Islands has been to stop letting off nuclear bombs there.

                  As I said, French-developed: Armitage counts through going through a French academy.

                  Doesn't say much for that academy, mind.

                    There is a difference between FFR and LNR, and you know it. Jean-Pierre Lux, Bernard Lapasset never help ours clubs. They have always been at war with them. Why do you think the LNR didn't want to have Lux at the ERC? A french should normally help an other french? But they're just two f...... traitors sucking your d.... to keep their seat. And you talk me about integrity, but what your Union have done to develop the game for all these years?No russian, no spanish, no georgian team in the Amlin Cup.

                      Fact is the cheese eating surrender monkeys (The French) are just tired of getting bate by us muck savages from the untamed west. That is why they want to take the ball away and not play anymore.

                        You didn't invent the World Cup, Australia and New Zealand did. You only came on board after. We invented the European Cup. We all pushed to include Italy. We have players from all over the world play with our provinces, all credit for sending money to help them too but we do that as part of the international rugby union.

                        We invented the world famous Barry Cup.

                        We invented the roundabout, guinness, torpedoes, hurling,the submarine, chocolate milk, boyles law, whiskey , radiotherapy, colour photography, the modern tractor, the tank and guided missiles

                        And best of all, we are better lovers. Women from all over the world agree.

                        Now take that in your pipe and smoke it you cheeky little rascal

                              Yes Syd Millar was the IRB president, but it was the FFR and Lapasset (this f... traitor) which pushed them for years. The Kiwis brought rugby to the PIs; the largest Polynesian city is Auckland. You then pillage them for Kolpak players. The greatest French contribution to the Pacific Islands has been to stop letting off nuclear bombs there. [/QUOTE]So if they are born in Auckland, they are kiwi. Not tongian, samoan or fidijian. How many players (who can not play for New Zealand) play in their franchises?

                                There is no law banning more than 4 non French players. You both know and appreciate the difference I am sure, not just in number but also specifically the French developed versus French Nationals
