Former international fly-half Lionel Beauxis announces his retirement

Curtain. In a few weeks, Lionel Beauxis will no longer be a professional rugby player. “It’s time to hang up the cleats and give some room to young people, launched Friday evening on Canal + the current opener of Béziers in Pro D2, who compiled 24 selections with the XV of France between 2007 and 2018. Even if the head wants, the body has more and more evil. There’s reduced playing time too. What I like is playing, being on the field, not polishing the benches. It is a whole. Maybe it was time to say stop. »

ASBH, where the 36-year-old Bigourdan arrived in 2021, will therefore remain his seventh and last professional club, after Pau, Stade Français, Toulouse, Bordeaux-Bègles, Lyon and Oyonnax.

Author of 128 points in Blue, Beauxis retires with a nice track record: world champion under 21 in 2006 (and crowned that year best player in the world in this category), victory in the 2007 Six Nations Tournament and two French championship titles, at the Stade Français in 2007 and at the Stade Toulousain in 2012.
