Special newsletter for the release of Tampon!

Let's celebrate the return of rugby!

On the occasion of the release of the 9th issue of our annual rugby Tampon!, the editorial staff has decided to delight you with offers paying tribute to the world of ovals. New prints , new mugs and lots of other surprises!

Concerning the prints, we decided to be as inspired as our national Antoine Dupont with no less than 6 new photos. Featured: the legendary Serge Blanco, from the France-England opposition, here you go (no less than 3 frames dating from before the 70s), Seb Chabal in power against Ireland and Frédéric Michalak during the memorable quarter-final against the All-Blacks in 2007.

This selection can of course be found now on our boutique.so !

It was difficult to bring together 2 legends of French rugby in such a beautiful shot. Jean-Pierre Rives or golden helmet and Serge Blanco in this match at Lansdowne Road in Dublin to face Ireland . And if the memory of this 22 - 16 defeat in the V Nations Tournament still hurts the oldest (but not only), do not hesitate to console them by offering them this legendary draw.

This shot smells like the powder of the first Crunches of the story between French and English . To highlight these first clashes, we offer you a moment of prehistory dating from 1924 with the captains of the two teams: Wavell Wakefield for the British (then became a member of the House of Lords and knighted by the Queen in 1963) and Aimé Cassayet-Armagnac for the Blues . Result: a 19 – 7 defeat has Twickenham for France , but retro photo as we like.

We stay at Twickenham with this photo dating from 1963 and V Nations tournament . And because a beautiful shot of this stadium is (almost) always taken in the heart of a England – France , we wanted to share with you this magnificent view of an enclosure which is no less magnificent. In addition, you will not have to endure this meeting which ends on a short defeat with a very small score, 6 to 5 in favor of the English.

And here is the victory we were waiting for! In front of a disillusioned Twickenham audience, Claude Dourthe comes to bring a big chill to England , which really doesn't need it at this time of year, namely February 1967 . This tasty try seals a 16–12 victory on the ground of our favorite enemies. A shot like that is priceless.

Could we imagine our Chabal in any other posture than this? 2007 World Cup organized at home, third match of this group D ( after a defeat during the inaugural match against Argentina and a convincing victory against Namibia) , the Blues must continue against Ireland and they can count on Sébastien Chabal . Thanks in particular to two tries from Vincent Clerc and penalties from Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, France won 25–3 . They will then go to the semi-final.

Still in this world tournament organized at home , direct elimination match this time: the quarter-final against New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff (yes, it's not quite our home). For this poster, the All Blacks in gray (what a mistake this jersey) are obviously favorites. And they confirm it with a controlled first half. But the Blues reverse this trend , like Frédéric Michalak , who thanks to this breakthrough allows Yannick Jauzion to score the decisive try of a monumental feat. A legendary match (20 – 18) for a draw that is no less so.

The mugs

So that the rugby spirit never leaves you, we are also releasing 10 new mugs. With legendary rugby quotes or taken from legendary interviews with Tampon!. We start with -of course- Moscato and its beauty tips...

Otherwise, you can always follow Berbizier's advice and change sports.

There is also Botha and the importance of a rugby player's perspective.

Rugby is a philosophy and in the Dalla Riva family, Bruno speaks about it very well...

For Dourthe , we feel that Dad's try in 1967 against the English represented much more than that...

Who better than Garuet to explain to us what is happening in the world of the front lines?

Laporte has a sense of the formula and he knows how to remind us of it with this sentence.

We can also offer you an observation from Lièvremont that will be difficult to contradict.

And because we want to convey to you the spirit of the legendary Jonah Lomu, here is a quote that will make you want to dump your neighbor early in the morning.

Finally, we couldn't find a better way to sum up our love for rugby than this sentence from JP Rives...
