Toulon chairman Mourad Boudjellal on building the champion club

Arguably, Toulouse, Clermont, and Castres are the only H-Cup calibre teams in the Top 14 who can post an all (nearly all) French squad and be competitive.

I would also argue that many of the foreign players on teams like Clermont, Castres, and Montpellier come from countries with little or no significant professional league.

When these teams sign players from GEO, ARG, FIJ, are they really poaching or hiring mercenaries? If so, it is in the same vein of other teams chock full of players from SANZAR and the Home Nations?

Madagascar wardance vs Namibia

Amazing backdrop. seating up against a hillside with a fort-like building on a hill.

Could be southern France for all we know.

As for all the haters, sure it's not the Haka.

But when you consider that #36 in the world is getting that kind of crowd and that electric of an atmosphere, our game isn't in such a bad place.
