France sack coach Guy Noves just weeks before the start of the Six Nations

France has sacked head coach Guy Noves after two years in charge, with Jaques Brunel replacing him.

Noves took over from Philippe Saint-Andre following the 2015 World Cup but presided over just seven wins in 21 Tests.

Former Italy coach Brunel has signed a contract to take him up to the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

France begins their Six Nations campaign in five weeks’ time when they host Ireland on February 3.
