Funnily enough, I've just checked the Digiplanet Bradford Bulls page and they [for some reason] have Bak down with a South African flag at the side of his name. I'd go along with yours a being the most likely. Putting in the name on Google does bring up a surprising number of people with that name though, even one currently living in Bradford.......

Banquet works for the town council in Carcassonne & wil coach the ASC Junior team next season. He's being playing low level union at Trebes last couple of years. Divet has been living in Carcassonne but not seen him around of late. Lived grew up I think in Sydney as youngster. Manly may be. Lucchese is also living in Carcassonne & was assistant coach/trainer at Limoux last year.

Couturier back in second or third spell at Toulouse Olympique. Playing back row these days I think. Has had spells playing union. Was member of that super TOXIII team who reached the CCsemis in 2005 and only one who travelled across the Channel with Justin Morgan.

Rated Dekkiche a lively three quarter who played at Avignon. Played top level union at La Rochelle.

Gigot who played Academy at Quins now reserve grade at Cronulla Sharks. Always ambitious to improve his game. Martins great wandering talent Hull KR, Leigh, Whitehaven now in Canberra playing country footy. Only if.

Berthezene should be lead part in Palau's rise to Elite 1 here from September. Tamghart played in Avignons Cup win last May. Still playing with no socks! Tallec went to play union at Toulon before they became big. Still in those parts I think. Involved with launch of a new treize team at Federal level. Going OK too & promoted to N1 for new season.

Regis Pastre started on the wing for Batley, then must have bulked up a bit, since I later saw him playing at Prop for Paris SG versus London at Charlton FC!

Dave Hadfield mentions this in his XIII Winters book in the chapter about Blackpool's promotion season in 78/79. After Blackpool, Bak went to Keighley.

Absolutely!  He also smashed my next door neighbour's nose and then offered him a contract at St Gaudens.

 

A lovely man to boot.

Is it also worth starting a thread on current UK / Antipodean players who have recently graced the French game?

Can remember a french back rower/loose forward from the mid 90's.. cant recall his name but remember him playing against Australia, over in Oz and doing reasonably well in an easily beaten French team. He was of North African decent and was apparently a body guard by profession.. had a pony tail.. can't for the life of me remember his name!..

Bit of a beast, taking it to the Kangaroo forwards while the rest of the team wilted. Shame he didn't stay in the game longer.
