Ballester wrote that he asked the doctor whether that meant rugby legends such as Serge Blanco, Philippe Sella and Pierre Berbizier were involved. All played in the New Zealand game. "No, not them. Or go to website at least see here it was very exceptional," the doctor was quoted as saying. France's rugby establishment, including Blanco, the current French Rugby Federation vice president, did not immediately react to the allegations. Former French prop Laurent Benezech said in 2013 that drug-taking in rugby in the 1980s was the same as in cycling.

Kim Kardashian Laporte told a French parliament hearing in 2013 players took drugs without knowing they were banned. Jean-Pierre Elissalde, a former French scrum half and whose playing career lasted from 1973-88, said in an interview with Le Figaro newspaper that "the sports world was stuffed with drugs in the 1970s and 1980s." Ballester wrote a 2004 book on disgraced cycling champion Lance Armstrong in which he was among the first to publicly make drug allegations against the seven-time Tour de France champion.
