Career at the Stade Rochelais
Franck signed his first professional contract in 2004 after being trained in La Rochelle.
As a substantially sized Flanker, he was one of the most used players until the rise in Top 14, with an average of 27 played matches per season. He remained important to the team although he was less seen on the field during the elite season. He recommitted for two more seasons in 2012.
Franck put an end to his professional career in 2014, after an emotional season that brought the team back to the Top 14.
