IC11 Squad - France Bleus on début

International Cup 2011

The French Bleus are attending the International Cup for the first time.

The squad has a relatively experienced average age of 26, with Sébastien Artus and widely travelled Pàll Thomas Finnsson both 36. The youngest player is Jory Giner from the club in Strasbourg. They average 180 cm (5'11") and although there are no "streaks" they do have four players in the 190s.

The crucial match will be their seeding game against Tonga, also at their first International Cup (at least, in the main draw) - the winner is likely to go through to Division One and a guaranteed top 12 finish, a great result for either team on debut.

IC11 Squad - France Bleus on début
Authored by: Aaron Richard on Thursday, July 28 2011 @ 02:21 pm ACST

Good to see that the 3 guys who went to Coolangatta have managed to stay in Australia (although two have moved down to Robinvale on the Vic/NSW border).

There were some worries that the job market on the Gold Coast had dried up a bit and it was getting hard to find them a job so they could stay long enough for the IC.

Anyone know how the Robinvale connection was organised?

I dont know, but being from up that way I know that Robinvale has a connection to France in that Robinvale was named in memory of Lieutenant George Robin Cuttle, who was killed during air combat over France in WW1 just outside of Villers Bretonneux.  Robin was from my home town of Ultima.

This link says that Villers Bretonneux is the sister city to Robinvale so there is surely something there.
