Post Conrad Smith to hang up his boots
He has declared that it's his last Season at Pau.

His record and performance up there with the greats.

It's his 3rd Season at Pau and he and Slade have contributed greatly to Pau's entry into the Top14.

He has truly integrated into the significant cultural aspects of the Pyrenées Atlantic region.

A role model.

Apologies for the french reference but it reflects his reputation here :thumbright:

Liked the way he and Slade have got on with it and truly integrated in the general circumstance and culture as well as obvious rugby contribution.

Pau is a low profile Club but the Region is very 'particular' and competitive cultures abound eg Basque teams, local dialects and the singing is excellent etc ...No soft soap from me BS ;)

An outwardly low key guy that just does the business!

Could imagine him being a good coach, highly respected to go with that
