Biography

Marcel-Frédéric Lubin-Lebrère played lock forward for France in rugby football at the 1924 Paris Olympics. He was capped 15 times for France, usually playing prop forward. Lubin-Lebrère played for US Montalbanaise early in his career and then was with Stade Toulousain from 1913-25, winning French titles with them in 1922, 1923, and 1924, after losing in the 1921 final. He later became a coach with Stade Toulousain in 1927-28. He was also a useful fencer, competing in regional competitions.

Lubin-Lebrère was badly injured in World War I, losing an eye. He later became a municipal employee of Toulouse, working with brick materials and in their gardens. In 1920 Lubin-Lebrère was arrested in a pub in Dublin for singing La Marseillaise, against the wishes of the Irishmen present.
