Lorient-born Jacques Rouillé was a goalkeeper, who began his professional playing career with Stade Français in 1955. Playing in the Second Division, he would start off as the understudy to the first-choice keeper at the time, and his patience paid off after two years when he made the number one shirt his own in the 1957/1958 season. The following season, he would discover the First Division with Stade Rennais. He played in the first half of the 1958/1959 season before being submitted to competition from Audigane for the rest of the campaign. Still the first-choice in the 1959/1960 season, he would suffer a shoulder injury at the start of the 1960/1961 campaign, and only played in a few games. His injury woes continued on the opening day of the 1961/1962 season, when he fractured his nose in a collision during the match against former club, Stade Français. This injury would keep him out for a considerable amount of time, and he had to wait until mid-season to gain a couple of appearances. In 1962, he would ultimately choose to leave Stade Rennais to return to his hometown, Lorient, to play in amateur football.
