What really happened in Vichy? The new ‘Rugby Reloaded’ discusses new research on why French rugby league was banned in 1941 with Dr Melissa McMahon (@batsyblog). She analyses why league was singled out and how amateurism became weaponised as part of the Vichy government's attempts to return France to a reactionary past.
