Lancaster ready to bet on the old Racing 92?
Indeed, having arrived last summer with a one-year contract, Rory Teague should not extend the adventure as coach in charge of the offensive sector, especially the rear lines. The former coach at Bordeaux-Bègles but also Gloucester will not be the only one to be pushed out. After four seasons in the role of coach in charge of kicking but also “skills”, Philippe Doussy would not remain under the orders of Stuart Lancaster. The former XV de la Rose coach, who will also have to deal with a reshuffled workforce, could succumb to the temptation to link up with several former glories of Racing 92. Currently in the role of coach alongside Laurent Travers, Dimitri Szarzewski is expected to stay on. The former third-line Yannick Nyanga, who is currently the coach of the hopeful team could rise in rank just like Joe Rokocoko.
