|Moises Duque vs Uruguay|
Brazilian international centre, Moises Duque has confirmed he will be playing rugby in France next season after telling Brazilian sources that he has agreed to terms with French Third division (Fédérale 1) side Blagnac. The São José dos Campos centre went to France with his brother, Lucas, following the national Brazilian mens team´ participation in the Emirates Airline Cup of Nations in Dubai last December. In France the pair had trials with professional clubs and were spotted at a Top 14 match in Brive which resulted in questions being asked over to the possible recruitment of a Brazilian to the Top 14.
Based in the zones of current French champions, Toulouse, Blagnac is in the rugby heartland of France. The Fédéral 1 has proven to be a breeding ground for international players from a number of developing rugby countries. The most successful being Georgia.
