I have started to play rugby in France in 2002 at my engineering school (ECE Paris). My school team was called "XV du Camion". I played only one short season, 2002-2003.

Then I played for 4 years at ESNanterre in the suburb of Paris. I was a 2nd row and a prop.

The "XV du Camion" evolved to "7 du Camion" as we played in 7s tournament across Europe. We went to :
– Barcelona (BCN7)
– Munich (Oktoberfest 7s)
– Dendermonde (Flanders open)
– Stockholm (Stockholm 10s)
– Neuvic (Tournoi du bouclier de l’an*s)
– Nanterre (DA7)

We still have a couple of tournament where we want to go: New York Thanksgiving Sevens, Midnight Rugby in Helsinki…

I now play in Finland for Helsinki Rugby Club.
I have been the main creator and organizer of the tournament of Helsinki: Midnight Rugby.
I have been playing in the National Team several times for friendlies and for the European Cup organized by FIRA.
I went for a 6 month trip to Dallas, Texas and played for Frisco Griffins. One of the fastest growing club in the US and a club with great ambitions. I wish I could have stayed there to be part of their project.
I also went with Helsinki rugby club to the European Champions 7s Trophy in Moscow in July 2011. We played against many professional teams and earned the wooden spoon…
