Michalak the magic man sparkles for France again

From golden boot to velvet glove, Frederic Michalak is turning Rugby World Cup 2015 into his very own masterclass.

Not any more. Michalak (pictured) marked a man-of-the-match performance by becoming the highest points scorer in French World Cup history, overtaking Thierry Lacroix's tally of 124 points..
