Date of birth: 8 April, 1996. Country: France
Where did rugby begin for you?
I am from a village close to Agen in south-west France, so I played for my village from the age of six to 15, then I joined Agen and spent three years there.
Have you always been a No 10?
I’ve always been a back but I didn’t start concentrating on fly-half til I was 15.
When did you link up with Toulon?
In the summer of 2014, when I was 18. I played for my region, Aquitaine, then France U18. Toulon saw me and called and I signed terms with them.
Who have you played for in the 2015-16 season?
Toulon Academy. I was picked once for the senior squad last season, against Clermont, but never came off the bench.
When did you first play for a France team?
I was selected for France U16 but got injured and so never played for them. But I played for France U17, the U18s, U19s and now the U20s.
Who have been your mentors?
All of my coaches have contributed to my progress in different ways. It’s been great to work with Jonny Wilkinson at Toulon. He comes down for a week each month and we work on all my skills, including my goal-kicking.
How would you describe your playing style?
I like running with the ball and attacking the line. I like to get my backline moving and I enjoy defensive duties too.
What are your aims now?
To play for the Toulon professional team.
What interests do you have outside rugby?
I am studying physical education at Toulon University. I also enjoy playing guitar and making the most of the Toulon lifestyle.
RW Verdict: As he showed in the 2016 U20 Six Nations, Belleau has the composure one doesn’t always associate with French fly-halves. Having Jonny Wilkinson as his mentor will only fine-tune his considerable talent
