Women's Rugby. The women's XV from France is changing their coach five months before the World Cup.

"In his new role Thomas Darracq, Annick Heyraud will support him, who will still act as manager," stated FFRugby.

Thomas Darracq, who was the general manager, was responsible for the sports projects.

"I would like the French Rugby Federation to be sincerely thanked for their trust. Darracq was quoted in the press release as saying that the French Rugby Federation has the ambition of seeing the French team win the next World Cup. "We have the ambition to build a team capable to equal the best nations around the world.

The staff change comes just five months after Gaelle Mignot (ex-captain of the Bleues in 2014's Grand Slam victory) and David Ortiz (ex-coach of Agen forwards, Pro D2) were appointed as assistant coaches.

Les Bleues came in second at the Six Nations Tournament, defeating England (24-12) in Bayonne on the final day.

Gaelle Hermet's team was disappointed against the Red Roses, at the top in the world rankings and the big favorites for World Cup. This is after an Autumn Tour that saw two victories for Les Bleues, New Zealand's world champion in title, and which included two wins for Les Bleues.
