Pelous

Fabien Pelous was one of the finest locks of his generation. A giant for France and Toulouse, he was a firm favourite with fans.

Fabien Pelous Bio

Fabien Pelous is a former French lock that was one of the greats of the game. A stalwart for both Toulouse and France, he was rightfully inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame in 2017, and the RugbyPass Hall of Fame in 2021.

At the amateur level, Fabien Pelous represented both Saverdun and SC Graulhet before he signed for Dax in 1995. After several impressive seasons for the club, he then signed for Toulouse, where he spent the majority of his playing career.

Between 1997 and 2009, Fabien Pelous represented Toulouse a whopping 222 times. During this period, he helped the side win the Heineken Champions Cup twice and captured the Top 14 three times.
Although he was hugely successful at the domestic level, Fabien Pelous was even more successful at the international level. Between 1995 and 2007, he represented France 118 times. Of these appearances, 42 came as captain of the side.

During his international career, Fabien Pelous became the first person to captain France to victories over Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In addition, he captained France to a Grand Slam title win at the Six Nations Championship in 2004. To date, he remains the most-capped French rugby player of all time.

When he retired from rugby in 2009, Fabien Pelous briefly moved into coaching with France A. He has since worked as team manager for several French age group sides, served as the sporting director of Toulouse and worked as a local councillor in the town of Garidech.
