Previous France rugby association star Christophe Dominici has died ‘suddenly’ at 48 years old.
The 67-times covered winger was a star of the 1999 Rugby World Cup, and broadly scored the attempt which beat New Zealand in the semi-last of the competition, in which the French lost to Australia in the last.
Dominici likewise played in the 2003 competition, where he scored four attempts and was yellow checked for stumbling England’s Jason Robinson in the semi-last.
After a year he endured a bad dream in the 2004 Six Nations when he failed having crossed the attempt line against Italy.
Dominici – who was likewise portrayed as ‘the capricious virtuoso of this game’ – won the French public titles multiple times with Stade Francais, just as arriving at two Heineken Cup finals in 2001 and 2005.
