We were chaparoned by Francois and his merry band of friends to his tres gentil Parents house ( Chers Grandparents Carrara , merci pour votre hospitalité et couche. Envoyer mon meilleur aux poulets) and a whistle stop tour of bars, trains, buses & bistros. The great thing about rugby is the camaraderie & entente cordiale that is shown by hosts to guests from rival teams whether boy,girl, man or woman. If only football could take a leave out of rugger's book: the world would be a happier place!
It was my 1st time at Stade De France and even with the deluge of rain it was a most impressive experience. Shame England lost though if the truth be known the ref was biast in favour of our Gallic friends across the pond!
Allez le bleu et la entente cordiale !!!
PS Thanks Serge for the 1st class seat on the Eurostar train back :-)
