Former French U20 star scores sublime individual try

Oh, to be French….

Putting aside a brutally tough Rugby World Cup quarterfinal exit for a second, French Rugby is in rude health at the moment.

Seemingly producing more high-quality operators than any other nation not called South Africa, the game in the republic looks set to continue its ascension as the premier destination for professional Rugby players.

Possessing arguably the most competitive professional league in the Top 14, French players have the opportunity to test themselves on a weekly basis against some of the best players in the world.

Thus, it is unsurprising that the factory line of talent coming through to boost the already deep player pool available to Les Bleus.

One name that has risen up the depth chart in recent months has been Stade Francais’s Léo Barré.

The 21-year-old utility back who covers flyhalf, centre and fullback has been tearing it up for the Parisian side and looks every bit ready for the international game.

Demonstrating his array of skills this weekend in his team’s narrow loss to the Leicester Tigers, Barré scored a ‘Worldie’ of a try.

Starting deep inside his own 22m, Barré went on a mazy run, which included a sublimely executed chip and chase kick to start with before slicing through several would-be tacklers.

Whilst Stade lost the fixture,  Barré’s performance was a reminder once again that the club have a budding superstar on their books as they look to push back towards the top of the French Rugby pyramid.
