Sharks coach to join French club
NEWS: Former France hooker Yannick Bru, who is currently with the Sharks’ coaching team, has signed to become manager of Bordeaux-Begles next season, club president Laurent Marti said Tuesday.
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.
