This week, French international winger Yoann Huget announced his retirement from the game at the age of 33. He will see out the remainder of the season with club Toulouse before hanging up the boots.
Huget won 62 caps for his country and spent most of his club career at Toulouse, having previously done stints at Bayonne and Agen.
While a talented winger come full back, Huget has always been something of a polarising figure in the game, with some notable incidents affecting his reputation.
Huget scored 14 tries for France, with his final score coming in the World Cup match against USA last year. But he has often courted controversy, with a feigned injury while playing for Toulouse against Bath, and a shambolic “altercation” with England’s Mike Brown in the 6 Nations in 2014.
Huget was also suspended three months from the game in 2011, after missing three out of competition anti-doping tests, forcing him to miss that year’s Rugby World Cup.
Despite this, Huget enjoyed a largely successful international career, which will be remembered as being hit-and-miss, typical of his side’s fortunes between 2010 and 2019.
