Lyon - Former France scrumhalf Lilian Camberabero has died from liver cancer. He was 78.

Camberabero played alongside his flyhalf brother Guy for both France and Ardeche-based club La Voulte-sur-Rhone, winning the French championship in 1970.

Notable international success was a 1967 victory over Australia when the two brothers scored all France's points. The following year, the pair were part of the team that won France's first-ever Grand Slam in the then-Five Nations tournament.

Lilian Camberabero went on to win 13 caps for France, retiring in 1971 at the age of 34.
