Biarritz sack coaching duo

Biarritz have sacked coaches Jack Isaac and Serge Mihas, three days after their Heineken Cup defeat to Connacht.

Club president Serge Blanco had been critical of the team's recent performances.

After a dreadful 2011-12 season, they have not been much better in this campaign and are currently mid-table in the Top 14.

The 22-14 defeat to Connacht at the Sportsground was the last straw for Blanco, whose team are now nine points behind pool leaders Harlequins.

They will host Connacht in their return match this weekend at the Parc des Sports Aguilera.

Laurent Rodriguez takes temporary charge of Biarritz for the Connacht match.
