I noticed from the line-up today that around 10 out of the starting 15 for Toulon were non-French players. If that is happening across the board (Top 14) then it must be hitting the French player pool quite dramatically?
I know France haven't had the best year but it looks like the overseas splurge on players is going to continue. Is it the same situation in French RU as exists in the Premier League where the big club bosses have little or no interest in the development of the national team?
Money talks and that is where everyone seems to be heading no matter which country or which competition you play in.
