After his title as French Junior Champion in 2000, Frédéric Michalak began his professional career in 2001, with both the Stade Toulousain team and as a member of the French national team where he made a remarkable debut from the very outset. In 2003 and 2005, Frédéric won the Heineken Cup with his club Stade Toulousain. In 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2010, he was selected for the French national team that won the Six Nations Championship.
In 2008, Frédéric left France for a season, to join the South African team the Sharks, winning the Currie Cup. Back in France late 2008, he signed up for another three years with his original club, the Stade Toulousain. Injured late 2010, Frédéric resumed his place within the club in September 2011, and gained the title of French Champion of the Top 14 the same year. Frédéric Michalak made several notable appearances in the French team in 2012, particularly during the test matches in November where he gave flawless performance on the field. Champion of the Top 14 in 2013 and European Champion in 2013 and 2014 with RCT, Frédéric’s next major objective is the Rugby World Cup taking place in England in September 2015.
