Pieter de Villiers and John McFarland have joined Heyneke Meyer’s coaching team at Stade Français.
De Villiers, who was recently released from his contract with SA Rugby, will be the French club’s forwards coach, while McFarland will be the defence coach.
De Villiers was Meyer’s scrum coach for the Springboks at the 2015 World Cup, while McFarland spent 10 years with the Bulls before joining Meyer at the Boks in 2012.
Former Munster scrumhalf Mike Prendergast will be Stade Français’ attack and backs coach, with Julien Dupuy responsible for skills, strategy and recruitment.
