Fabrice Estebanez (born 26 December 1981 in Carcassonne), is a French former rugby league player and now rugby union player. He is a utility back and is able to play center and flyhalf. He has played for his CA Brive before joining Racing Metro 92.


Fabrice Estebanez began playing Rugby League at youth level with Pamiers XIII, then with Limoux XIII. He switched code a first time, playing Rugby Union for U.S. Colomiers as a junior (under 20) player. In 2001, Estebanez switched back to Rugby League, playing for Limoux XIII for three years before joining Toulouse XIII Olympique where, in 2005, he reached the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup. He earned 25 caps for the France national rugby league team.

In 2006, he switched to Rugby Union again, joining Rugby Club Gaillac which was just promoted to Pro D2. Since 2007, he plays in the Top 14 for CA Brive. His preferred position is at fly-half, although he often plays at centre. On 20 January 2010, he was called by coach Marc Lievremont in the French squad for the 2010 Six Nations Championship.[1] He made his debut for France against Fiji in November 2010.
