Watch: Retiring Guirado's post final celebrations

Watch: Retiring Guirado's post final celebrations

Former France captain Guilhem Guirado enjoyed a stunning send-off featuring in Montpellier's maiden Top 14 title victory.

In the changing room after the victory, the 36-year-old took a run from one end of the Montpellier dressing room and slid headfirst into the Bouclier.

Philippe Saint-Andre had this to say about the retiring legend: “Very happy, yes. I’m also happy for Mohed Altrad. He was criticised a lot but invested a lot of his time and his money in this adventure. He had the courage to call me two years ago to get me back in the game.

“And then, I’m obviously happy for these guys who come from different backgrounds and who form a great entity with us: there are those who are at the end of their career, like Guilhem Guirado or Fulgence Ouedraogo, those coming from Pro D2 like Alexandre Becognee or those who needed to be revived like Bastien Chalureau or Florian Verhaeghe.”
