Thomas Castaignede (born 21 January 1975) is a former French rugby union footballer from Mont-de-Marsan, Gascogne. Born in Mont-de-Marsan, Aquitaine, Castaignede played as a junior and senior for Stade Montois in various positions, initially as fly-half or centre, and latterly as fullback. He joined Toulouse to help them win French titles in three successive seasons, and lifted the inaugural European Cup with the club. Castaignede entered the international scene in 1995 when his drop goal defeated England in the final minute of a Five Nations. Having joined Castres Olympique in preparation, in 1999 he was called for the 1999 Rugby World Cup, playing a single game, but had to pull out due to a thigh problem. Castaignede joined Saracens in 2000 but in November of that year he suffered an Achilles injury while warming up for France against Australia. The injury kept him out for 18 months, until April 2002. In 2003, he was dropped from the national team, with Bernard Laporte preferring Brian Liebenberg, and not returning until November 2005 against Australia when he appeared as a substitute in a 26-16 win.
