He was also director of a household appliances business and owner of a restaurant in Paris.
As a rugby player, EluÃ¨re earned his first merit as a member of the French military team, when he was stationed as a stenographer in Nantes. After the war, the blindside flanker joined the Sporting Club Universitaire de France, where he became team captain and played until 1923. His cousin [Xavier EluÃ¨re] won a bronze medal as a heavyweight in the 1920 Olympic boxing tournament.
