Puig Aubert Player Profile

Puig Aubert was an instrumental part of the French 1951 World Champions Team. The French gave the aussies a lesson during the Third test of the 1951 Tour. France's first ever tour in the Southern Hemisphere.

Puig-Aubert broke all the rules. Firstly, he did not have the physique expected of an international player; he took the view that a fullback's role was not to tackle and backed up his belief in some matches by refusing to do so. When kicking for goal, he turned his back on the ball when walking back to prepare for the kick. There was no measured step towards the ball and he had the fastest approach of any big time kicker.
