Love him or hate him, he was a helluva player.

Do you remember that :censored: Dallaglio calling him Hariordinary?
If that was an attempt at a wind-up, it was a poor one cos Harinordoquy was indeed a helluva player and let's hope he and Toulouse will bow out as Top14 champions - unlikely maybe, but then again......

A top class 8 in the last of the vintage France teams, hope he finishes well at Toulouse because he certainly deserves it

Or Harry Donkey as Jonathan Davies insisted on calling him during one international.

His real name was "I'm an old hairy donkey"

One of the best French players of all time, he showed determination skill and sportsmanship throughout his career. Never Adieu Harry simply
Au revoir.

Unlikely we'll see him again, so it's adieu.
