Before bowing out at the end of the season, Kévin Lardy wanted to come full circle with his friends at the Silver Fox
Kévin Lardy made his rugby debut. “When I was young, I liked going to see my father, who played center. As soon as my friend Hervé Lebrun pulled me by the hand, I started at Aytré before then going to Stade Rochelais until I was 19, “says the one who then quickly understood that he had to look elsewhere. . “They wanted me to play 9”, grimaces the one who was not hot and therefore took the direction of Montauban. The duo of technicians Labit – Travers, rubbed shoulders with Sapiac, then enlisted him for Castres. “It was a bit special because you only live from rugby”, evokes, doubtfully, the child of the ball. But the hope will be short-lived. “The second year, I played little because of repeated injuries. I then left for Valence-d’Agen to find my old coach, Sébastien Calvet. But the noose tightened, I didn’t want to find myself with nothing, I had to focus on my professional future, I had to move. So I opted for a multi-activity contract at Cahors in F2. The derbies were hotly contested, ”recalls Kévin Lardy, who also knew the France Federal team. But such memories do not feed her man, who left for Paris for professional reasons. Weariness and setbacks then prompted him to take a step back with the oval.
