Adolphe Jaureguy again...
Frederic kindly sent me this nice photography (*)... Toulouse center and captain François Borde (yes, with a beret !) passing the ball to his winger Adolphe Jaureguy... two legendary players from a period when Stade Toulousain was ruling French championship... six times champion (and one lost final) between 1921 and 1927...
The picture, signed by the players, is dedicated to Dr Paul Voivenel, a former prop from Toulouse before WW1, then journalist at La Depeche du Midi (the main regional newspaper in Toulouse) and Midi Olympique (the one and only rugby weekly newspaper)
Frederic is an editor who published earlier this year a great book to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Stade Toulousain (this photography is inside the book... on a double page...)
