Need for speed?

According to “Rugby a Charges, l’enquete choc” - a new book by French journalist Pierre Ballester - French players were all on amphetamines during the 1980s, including during the infamous “Battle of Nantes” against the All Blacks in 1986.

“They each had their little pill in front of their plates for the meal before the match,” French team doctor of the time, Jacques Mombet, is quoted as saying.

All of which begs the question - what are the current French team taking – Diazepam?
