That year he was part of the French Grand Slam-winning side who lifted what was their eighth outright title in the tournament.
Laporte went on to become France’s topscorer at the 1987 Rugby World Cup, although he sat out the final against eventual winners New Zealand.
In later life he went on to become a vice-president of the French Rugby Federation and head coach of Castres.
