Top14 club Bayonne and Elissalde part ways

Jean-Pierre Elissalde’s brief reign as coach of struggling French Top 14 club Bayonne ended on Sunday after just three matches, the Sud-Ouest newspaper reported on its website.

Elissalde was named in the hot-seat on December 9 to succeed former joint-coaches Christian Gajan and Thomas Lievremont.

But he resigned on Sunday, having presided over a 16-16 draw with Castres, a 30-15 defeat by Toulouse and a 27-20 loss to Bordeaux-Begles to leave Bayonne in danger of relegation.

According to Sud-Ouest, backs coach Didier Faugeron will now take charge of the first team.
