Bru, 49, cut his playing teeth with Toulouse before taking up coaching, first at that club before becoming assistant to then-France coach Guy Noves.

A move to Bayonne between 2018-22 has been followed by a stint as a consultant with the Durban-based Sharks, who ironically take on Bordeaux-Begles in the Champions Cup on Saturday.

Bru signed a four-year deal alongside Thibault Giroud, currently performance director for the France national team.
