NEWS: Englishman Rory Teague was named as coach of Bordeaux-Begles after the departure of Jacques Brunel to the France national team.

Teague, 32, was previously backs coach for the club and as a player plied his trade in ProD2 teams Limoges, Tarbes, Aurillac and Grenoble between 2007-11.

In England, Teague made his name as backs coach of the under-20 England team before becoming skills coach of the full international XV team under Eddie Jones.

Teague will be backed up by four assistants: ex-Ireland international Jeremy Davidson takes charge of the forwards, former England flanker Joe Worsley focuses on defence, France international prop Jean-Baptiste Poux the scrum and Ludovic Loustau physical fitness.
