You said what? 9 gems from the mouth of Marc Lièvremont

We’re hoping for a couple more of these pearlers in the run-up to Saturday’s semi-final.

I’D SAY MARC LIÈVREMONT’S press conferences are an absolute delight. You just never know what you’re going to get.

Will he name one of his scrum-halves at number 10? Will he prove that he’s miles ahead of the fashion curve by sporting a ridiculous soup-strainer?

Or will he let the words do the talking and produce an absolute zinger of a soundbite?

Needless to say, we’ll be keeping a close eye (and ear) on the French camp for the next few days, but here are some old favourites from the mouth of mad Marc.
