1968 France Rugby Sweatshirt Zipper
Inspired by the 1968 France Rugby Grand Slam winning team
France Rugby first ever Grand Slam in 1968
Victories over Scotland 8 points to 6. Ireland 16 points to 6. And England 14-9 at Stade Colombes. France had already won the championship. But needed to defeat Wales to win the coveted Grand Slam (Grand Chelem).
France’s captain was flanker Christian Carrère. Also, in the back row were Walter Spanghero and Michel Greffe. And Elie Cester along with lain Plantefol at Lock forward. Michel Yachvili (the father of Dimitri) was at hooker. Either side at Prop was Jean-Claude Noble and Michel Lasserre.
France Rugby’s first Grand Slam and the Tri-colour Flag
The team marched on to the Arms Park in Cardiff. And after a famous victory proudly displayed the French Tri-colour flag that inspired the Ellis Rugby designs. The three-quarter included Centre’s Jo Maso and Claude Dourthe. André Campaes and Jean-Marie Bonal were on the wings and Claude Lacaze at full-back. The half-back pairing included brothers Guy and Lillian Camberabero. Two clever tacticians.
Unfortunately, torrential rain resulted in the notorious Arms Park turning into a mud bath. Wales led 9-3 at halftime. The second half saw tries by the French skipper Christian Carrère and Lillian Camberabero. With brother Guy adding a conversion and a second penalty. He also added a drop goal to secure the final result of 14 points to 9. And the first-ever French Grand Slam (Grand Chelem).
