Camille Grassineau was named the DHL Impact Player for Langford as France finished fourth at the penultimate round of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series 2018.
The 27-year-old was a constant threat at the Westhills Stadium, and while she may have only crossed for four tries herself over the weekend she created many more for her team-mates as France showed that their Cup final appearance in Kitakyushu was no one-off result.
Grassineau’s work on defence was immense and it is no surprise that she topped the charts for most tackles with 34, which when combined with 13 carries, 5 breaks and four offloads gave her a total of 56 points for the Canadian round of the series.
This tally was three more than Ireland’s Stacey Flood with Canada’s Bianca Farella, the tournament’s top try-scorer with eight, third with 49 points.
Japan captain Chiharu Nakamura made the most offloads with nine, while Australia’s Emma Tonegato made the most breaks (11) and Farella sharing the most carries (24) with Ireland duo Flood and Lucy Mulhall.
Grassineau now sits joint second in the Performance Tracker for the 2018 series on 175 with New Zealand’s Michaela Blyde, just two points behind Nakamura. With one round of the series remaining the top six players are only separated by seven points with Flood, Muhall and USA’s Alev Kelter firmly in the running for the accolade.
The final round of the series takes place in Paris, France, on 8-10 June.
