Paraschiv appointed Romania manager

Mircea Paraschiv has been appointed manager of the Romanian national rugby union team, the Mediafax agency reported on Tuesday.

He replaces Tudor Constantin who quit last week after just two months in the job claiming members of the national federation (FRR) were not up to the task.

Former national coach Paraschiv has held the post of national technical director since after the 2007 World Cup.

As a player Paraschiv won 63 caps with the national side between 1975 and 1988, playing his first World Cup in 1987.

He won eight titles as a coach with Dinamo Bucharest, but his period as national coach from 1994 to 2001 saw Romania suffer their worst ever loss, a 134-0 rout to England at Twickenham in the 2001 World Cup.
