    Now that France has bombed out of the world cup or so I believe, I can't stand soccer so don't follow it, and with the rugby teams success in recent years, do you see a shift from soccer to rugby as Frances national game?

    Thoughts.

    Could you please move this if it is in the wrong forum, sorry if it is.

    Not for a long while. Soccer is still a more global sport. And until the IRB improves, that won't happen for a while.

    Although, French rugby seems to be better managed and administrated than French football.

    i was under the impression that the number 1 sport in france was cycling? however the point being is that im sure something like this would mearly be simmilar to soccer in nz. doing very well admittedly, but with rugby being in a bit of a slum, be it results, crowd attendants or actual watchabillity, a sport that competes for amature players and season will pick up in general and may overtake the sport for a breif period, but i dont think it will be a long lasting relationship.
