The World Rugby Museum's forthcoming special exhibition - 'Allez Les Bleus: The History of Rugby in France', will document the long and storied history of Les Bleus and French Rugby.
The exhibition will document the game's early Olympian and Parisian origins and its spread into the rural heartlands of the South-West.
It will examine the turmoil of war and the innovations that lead the birth of international women's rugby. It will showcase the first French captain, the entertainers, and successive golden ages of French rugby.
More than anything, it will celebrate a game that has come to define French culture, where it is not enough to win, but to win with style is everything.
