Sensational Claim Made Regarding Phillipe Saint Andre’s Future

Former Leinster hooker Bernard Jackman is currently based in Grenoble France, and has tweeted that reports have emerged claiming French Rugby head coach Phillipe Saint Andre has been effectively axed from the position.

French news outlet L’obs Sport also report that the players have “discreetly dismissed” the coach prior to their quarter-final clash with New Zealand. The players have grown weary of his “lack of charisma”, and don’t see the former Gloucester man as a “leader of men”.

The article claims:

“The return of Morgan Parra as the head of the team is a sign that the staff decided to leave the players to their own devices.”

As a result, it appears that the French team will coach themselves against the mighty All Blacks at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on Saturday night.

Naturally, we’ll be putting the house on France to win the crucial encounter.
