Gerry Cranham

Cranham France galles JPR rives Rugby

About the image

5th February 1977, Parc des Princes, France vs. Wales.
The first victory for Fouroux’s gang who went on to win France’s second ever grand slam, the first since 1968.
And what’s more, with the same 15 players for all four matches.
JPR Williams tackled by Jean-Pierre Rives.

Gerry Cranham's account

Jean-Denis chose it

Above and beyond the memory, the event, the nostalgia. Above and beyond the almost iconic subjects that are « JPR » and « Golden helmet » (Rives’ nickname). There is the esthetic force, the movement, the curves and the hair all mirroring each other.
