Fabien Pelous has been appointed as the new coach of France 'A'. Pelous, France's record caps holder with 118 appearances, is also currently still playing for French Top 14 leaders Toulouse.
Pelous will be joined by fellow international legend and former Brive coach Olivier Magne and former France U20 boss Philippe Agostini as assistant coaches.
Agostini's role with the U20 squad has gone to former international fly-half David Aucagne, who will work alongside team manager Philippe Sella.
