Awful news. I will always remember that try against NZ in 1999 and he was still starting and rapid for France at 35.

He was quite open about his depression in the past and childhood trauma from what I understand, is it being reported as suicide in France?

Complete shock. Do you know any background to it, Clement?

Poor man. You always hope they can find someone or something to reach out to for help.

That's awful stuff. Was only looking at the chap making shit of the AB's a week or two ago on some facebag video. What score was it when he blowing out his mouth after it?

Yes, his life has been a chaos. He is an example of many of the players who, unknown to the public, struggle with depression and deep suffering.

Yes, in Saint Cloud. In a park. He jumped from the roof of a abandoned building. About 10m fall...

That is really sad.

I have wonderful memories of him and some of the rugby played by teams he was in. I didn't realise he had had such struggles. Hopefully no wife and kids to suffer?

All deaths are sad
Hearing that it was as a result of suicide is always worse

Sad news :(

As well as the fantastic score against the ABs that everyone remembers, I’ll always remember him for one of the best howlers of all time - https://youtu.be/C_IuaU8WMxU

One of the first games I can remember watching was France/New Zealand 99. Dominici and Lomu are the players that got me interested in rugby that afternoon.

That's sad.
