Massive Attack

In the Top14 semi-final between Toulon and La Rochelle there was a real battle of the giants when Toulon’s centre Mathieu Bastareaud took on lock Uini Atonio –


It wasn’t quite David v Goliath although Bastareaud is a mere 120kg compared with the 155kg Atonio!

That’s 18.9 stone c.f. 24.4 stones for those of us who arrived before 1965.


I played in the centre and am bloody glad blokes like Mathieu weren’t around in my day – although if they had been they would have had a much lower number of their backs!
