Larroyer calls for French unity


Hull KR back rower Kevin Larroyer has called for French rugby league to pull together, in order to produce a stronger national team.

France have flattered to deceive in recent years, with key Super League players often not turning up to play for the national side.

Larroyer wants to see more unity so that the game as a whole in France can improve.

“We’ve got loads of young players but they don’t really know where to go,” Larroyer told BBC Radio Humberside.

“We are all divided. I think we need to work with each other to be strong, to work together and try to improve rugby league in France because I really think we’ve got potential.

“We need a strong French championship as well to try to give some new players to Catalans Dragons or give a chance to go to [League One side] Toulouse as well or to go and have a crack in Super League.”
