Didier Cabestany

Recommended Posts

Has passed away. At a young age in Perpignan The Catalan forward played I think in that first ever Super League game at the Charlety Stadium in Paris PSG-Sheffield. XIII Catalan was his local club. He was capped 20 times for France and was in the last Tricolores team to beat GB at Headingley in 1990. Back row below fifth from the left next to Danny Divet who played at Hull FC and Feathersone.

Sad news. Remember Didier playing alongside the likes of Entat, Chamorin, Divet in the French team of the 90's. A hard working back row if memory serves me correct.
