Rugby was introduced to France in 1872 by English merchants and students. On 26 February 1890, a French rugby team recruited from the Janson Desailly Lyceum defeated an international team at the Bois de Boulogne.
Although France were represented at the 1900 Summer Olympics, their first official test match did not take place until New Year’s Day, 1906 against the New Zealand All Blacks in Paris.
