The Top 5 French Flair moments of All Time

On the eve of the Wallabies vs France series kicking off, the guys at Fox Sports have put together this belter of a compilation featuring some of the best moments of French Flair from the last however many years. There are also a few random bits in there too.

It’s the first time Australia have hosted Les Bleus in a three-Test series since way back in 1990 so while you never can quite tell what to expect, it’s sure to be a thrilling series.

The big story of the week is James Horwill’s demotion as captain of the Wallabies, with former teammate Stephen Moore stepping up to lead the team, while Horwill starts off the bench.

France are without their regular captain too, as Thierry Dusautoir has an injured bicep. 

As part of the build up we get to look at some of the most sensational French flair tries ever scored, all nicely put together by beret wearing, French speaking Sean Maloney.
