Misc news

As the ABs have met for their first conditioning camp before the World Cup, there is not much to say (training, sleeping, training, sleeping... but it's for the Nation's sake!)

But even when there is not much to say, there are still things to say!

Here is a video Izzy sent last week : Richie and Corey Flynn meeting the kids at Ronnie's House in the Southern Island. Another great champion that I like is also involved into the Ronnie's House... but in Canada (Alexandre Despatie, diving)

These men are great champions but they also have a big heart and that's why we love them...

Video de Richie et Corey Flynn visitant la maison de Ronnie McDonald de l'ile du Sud (maison specialisee pour les enfants malades).
Cette association (les maisons de Ronnie) existent sur toute la planète (en France, je ne sais pas qui soutient l'assoc' mais au Canada, c'est un grand champion de plongeon -Alexandre Despatie- qui y prend part)

Champions au grand coeur, on vous dit...

To promote the learning/teaching of French around the globe, the French-speaking channel TV5 monde has launched a campaign around rugby with foreign players from the French championship.

Like Tony Marsh, Mike James, Pieter de Villers, Finau Maka,... Learn how to 'parler rugby'!

Pour promouvoir la langue francaise sur la planete, TV5 a lance une campagne de pub autour du rugby avec des joueurs etrangers du Top 14.

Allez a la decouverte des accents du monde entier, de ces hommes (et ces femmes) qui font des efforts pour "parler Rugby" --et moi aussi Tony, j'aime bien le mot 'Bisous' (d'ailleurs, on t'en fait plein de bisous, nous des bisous mon pti Tony parce que tu vas nous manquer!)

Merci ma tite Sian ;)

Of course, it's impossible! It's tough enough for a foreigner to be (just) the head coach of a Super Rugby team, so imagine when it's for the national team...

Thanks Cass for the link ;)

Ah ben, ca alors...

Vous voyez un anglais a la tete du XV de France? Ben moi, non plus! Eh ben, dans l'hemisphere Sud, ils pensent comme nous! C'est tellement rare qu'il faut le souligner! Ils ne voient pas un Neo Zelandais (sous entendu Robbie Deans -qui a resigne avec la NZRU) a la tete des Wallabies...

C'est deja pas tous les jours faciles pour les etrangers qui entrainent les equipes de province, alors imaginez l'equipe nationale...

- Richie and Corey celebrating the Super 14 title last year.
- Alexandre Despatie and Serena Williams at Ronnie's Manor in Toronto, Canada (2005).
- Tony Marsh (NZ and France), Finau Maka (Tonga) and Pieter de Villiers (South Africa and France) : profile pictures.
- Eddie Jones as a 'special adviser' for the Springboks (yes, it's the same picture as in the previous article... I won't search another pic, I don't really like the guy)
