Les Bleus winger Yoann Huget has spoken of his new approach to playing rugby, which has seen him replace nervousness with fun on the field.
The 25-year-old Toulouse player, who sat out four months of the game after being hit with a ban for failing to notify the France's anti-doping agency of his whereabouts on three occasions, has been in sound form for his new club side since making the switch from Bayonne in the off-season.
And the man capped nine times is expected to start this weekend for his country in their game against Australia, with a new frame of mind.
"My approach has changed after suspension. I approach matches differently, with much more fun," he told l'Equipe.
"I feel privileged whenever I play and I enjoy every moment because I know it can stop at any time. This has become my philosophy since my return."
Huget's return to Toulouse has been a successful one and he admits that the ever-changing coaching roster at Bayonne did impact on his and the team's form.
"When you are part of a team like Toulouse you really trust the coaches," he added.
"Last year, in Bayonne, the situation was difficult because of changes of coaches and my suspension. 2011 was a difficult year in sport and for me personally."
