The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff could be a field of dreams for French rugby fans this season if the championship favourites secure the Six Nations trophy.

Eight of the French team aiming to lift the RBS Six Nations trophy on Saturday, by beating Wales in the Championship finale, could make it a Millennium double if they secure a place with their club sides in the Heineken Cup final. A victory for France at the Millennium Stadium would almost guarantee the RBS 6 Nations title for Bernard Laporte’s men.      

Heineken Cup triple champions Toulouse provide the backbone to the French team with captain Fabien Pelous leading the way with his club team-mates Florian Fritz, Frédéric Mickalak, Yannick Nyanga. Reserves Cedric Heymans and Jean -Baptiste Ellisalde of Toulouse will be waiting for the call from the bench.


French champions Biarritz who face Sale in the quarter-final are represented by Damian Traille, Dimitri Yachville, Jerome Thion and Thomas Lievrement.


All of these French stars will have their sights set on returning to the Millennium Stadium on Saturday 20 May to fight for the title of champions of Europe.
