Career[edit]

Aurelien Rougerie

Rougerie was born in Beaumont, Puy-de-Dôme. His father, Jacques Rougerie, was also a French international, playing at loosehead prop while his mother was an international at basketball (107 caps).

France[edit]

Rougerie debuted with the French national team against South Africa in 2001.

Club[edit]

Rougerie sued Phil Greening of England for a hand off during a European game in 2002 that left him with a throat injury forcing him to undergo 3 larynx surgeries. Greening was ordered to pay £29,000 in compensation.

In 2007, he won the European Challenge Cup with Clermont against Bath at the Stoop of Twickenham (22-16). Then he captained the Clermont Auvergne side that won the French championship, the Bouclier de Brennus, after 10 unlucky chances, against Perpignan in a one way final (19-6) on the 29th of May 2010.
