Safi N’Diaye

Safi has been a fixture of the France team since making her debut in 2012. The fearsome 33-year-old forward has 81 appearances for the team so far and has been part of three Six Nations Championship title wins for France during her illustrious career, with two of those triumphs ending in Grand Slams.


She was a major factor in France’s third place finish at RWC 2014, leading to being named the inaugural Midi Olimpique Oscar for best French female player.  France repeated their third-place finish at RWC 2017, and Safi was nominated for World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year in both 2017 and 2018. Safi was part of the World Rugby Team of the Decade in 2020 and is currently preparing for the RWC 2021, played in 2022, in New Zealand.


Her impact in the domestic game has also been significant, winning six trophies in the French top flight with Montpellier, as the captain of the team, since making the switch from Castres in 2011.


Off the field, Safi works with disabled youth, assisting their doctors and teachers and supporting the families.
