And Jauzion admitted it’s time to hand over the baton to his Toulouse teammate.
“The club wanted to start a new chapter and give the younger players like Gael Fickou a chance. I hope he takes full advantage, supported by Florian Fritz and Yann David,” said Jauzion.
“It is better to stop on a high with last season.”
“At Toulouse I learnt humility and that you can always reassess and learn.”
Jauzion was also part of two World Cup campaigns with France in 2003 and 2007, reaching the semi-finals on both occasions, each time losing to England.
“Like always, we fell to the English,” he added.
“It always constituted a sporting challenge to try and win against the best players in the world.
“Getting selected for your country gave you extra confidence with your club, which your had more affinity for, except for when it came to the World Cup.”
