French Rugby Cap
Marcel Communeau first played for France in 1906, aged 19. He later captained France in 1911 in their first victory against a Home Countries, v Scotland.
He was a great modern forward and team leader. He won 21 caps for France between 1906 and 1913 (a long lasting record), being elected Captain 13 times between 1908 and 1911.
