Gregory Alldritt Biography – Gregory Alldritt Wiki
Gregory Alldritt is a French professional rugby union player who plays for the Top 14 club La Rochelle and the France national team.
Born in Condom-en-Armagnac in southwestern France, Alldritt plied his trade at the esteemed club Auch in his academy days. Having progressed through the academy ranks at Auch, he would eventually make his professional debut for the club in the 2016-17 season, scoring two tries in 14 appearances.
However, with the club going bankrupt at the end of that season, Alldritt was forced to move and eventually joined top-division side La Rochelle.The 2020/21 season – his fourth with the club – was one of the Frenchman’s most devastating, running in 12 tries in 18 games as La Rochelle agonisingly finished runner-up in the Top 14 and the European Champions Cup.
Under the tutelage of former Irish great, Ronan O’Gara, the French club responded the following year in emphatic fashion to capture their first-ever European Champions Cup with a victory over Leinster in the final.
In 2023, the club repeated the feat, again downing the Irish side in the final with a dramatic 27-26 victory having been 17 points down at one stage in the contest.
Alongside this decorated club career, Alldritt has enjoyed great success in the international arena. He made his debut in the 2019 Six Nations, coming on as a late replacement in France’s defeat to Wales but made an instant impact just two games later with a brace of tries against Scotland.
After a disappointing World Cup in 2019, which saw Les Blues exit at the quarter-final stage against Wales, Alldritt was a key figure in the 2020 Six Nations as Fabien Galthie began his tenure as head coach with a second-place finish. Alldritt produced three man-of-the-match performances during the tournament and was nominated for Player of the Championship.
In 2022, Alldritt was a key cog as France completed the Grand Slam and won the Six Nations title for the first time since 2010.
Alldritt is a key part of France’s squad at the 2023 Rugby World Cup as the host nation goes in search of the elusive Webb Ellis Cup having finished runner-up in 1987, 1999 and 2011.

The relationship blossomed and when Terence and Kristen decided to get married, it was his father who ultimately decided what rugby colour rugby jersey he would eventually wear. Alldritt explained: “My mum said, ‘Okay let’s go to Scotland,’ and my dad said, ‘No way, if we have a choice between Scotland and the southwest of France we are going to live in the southwest of France.’”
They settled in Condom-en-Armagnac in Gers, an area west of Toulouse, and had three sons, Gregory, the youngest, Scott, who lives in Edinburgh and plays with Stewart’s Melville FP, and Tom. “When you are in the southwest of France with a father who plays rugby, you automatically go to rugby when you start sport when you are young,” Alldritt recalled.
