There is no joy in Moud-ville

Unfortunately for the French, their rugby fortunes since the SIx Nations Cup have gone downhill. First Montferrand, the rugby club from Clermont-Ferrand lost the European Challenge Cup to London Harlequins and now Toulouse, last year's European Rugby Cup winners, lost their title to London Wasps. For the un-inititated, the European Rugby Cup is the rugby version of soccer's Champion's League where the best rugby teams in Europe compete. The European Challenge Cup is the rugby version of soccer's UEFA Cup, i.e., a contest where the teams that were not good enough for the European Rugby Cup still get to play against each other for something. Il n'y a pas de joie a Moud-Ville.
