Brunel off to coach at UBB

Date published: March 14 2016

UBB president Laurent Marti announced on Monday the appointment of Italy boss Jacques Brunel as forwards coach.

Brunel will join UBB for the next three seasons, starting at the beginning of the 2016/2017 season.

Italy under Brunel have claimed victories over France, Scotland and Ireland, but their form of late has been poor with just one Six Nations victory since 2014.

The current Italian coach will replace Régis Sonnes as part of the club's coaching staff.
