"French Legend Looks Ahead to Rugby World Cups in Japan and France"

Two rugby legends – one Japanese, one French – are coming to the Club to look ahead not only to this year's Rugby World Cup in Japan, but also to the 2023 edition in France.

France's Frederic Michalak, a veteran of three World Cups, will come to the Club to give his views on the upcoming World Cup in Japan and also, in his role as ambassador, on the 2023 World Cup in France. The 36-year-old former France and Toulouse fly-half will give his insights on the tournaments, the teams and the sport.

He will be joined by former Japan Captain Takuro Miuchi, who played in Japan's 29-51 loss to France in a 2003 World Cup pool match in which Michalak score over 20 points, including a try. Miuchi made his international debut and captained the Brave Blossoms at the same time in 2002. He retained the captaincy until 2008 and retired from competition in 2014. At 43, he is currently a forwards coach at Japan's Top League side Hino Red Dolphins.

Michalak ended his international duty in 2015 as Les Bleus' all-time test points scorer with 436 points from 77 caps. He was in the French team that won Six Nations Grand Slams in 2002, 2004 and 2010. In 2018, he retired from active rugby with Lyon and then assumed an advisory role at the club.
