Pierre-Henri Broncan will participate in the World Cup! Technician Gers will undoubtedly be an advisor to Australian Eddie Jones. He will be involved in the forwards match alongside Neil Hateley.
It won’t take long for Pierre-Henri Broncan to find a job. Less than a month after he was removed from his duties as CO manager on February 20, Technician Gers will return to the Australian team, who will act as an advisor in charge of the forward play. The Gers technician should join the Wallabies early next week.
His mission will come into force from May and will continue until the end of Australia’s World Cup adventure. The Frenchman’s goal would be clear: to help the Wallabies become world champions, and nothing less!
Pierre-Henri Broncan was contacted by Eddie Jones, whom he had known while living in Bath, England, when the latter was still XV de la Rose coach. The two men remained very close after this experience. We remember in particular that Jones came on leave for the French technician during one of his last visits to France and that on this occasion he attended a CO match in Montpellier after his participation in the Tarnais training week. Five months into the World Cup, Broncan was tapped to come and bring his experience to a Wallabies team that had been losing momentum before Jones took over last January.
Tom Palmer expected Eddie Jones to draw his World Cup crew
This weight boost isn’t the only one the Wallabies have recorded in recent hours. On Thursday, the Australian coach, who is already working with Brett Hodgson as a defense specialist, named Neil Hateley as scrum coach. It’s a technician he knows well since he already held the same position in his team during XV de la Rose’s 2019 World Cup final defeat by South Africa.
Finally, according to our information, former England international Tom Palmer could also join the Australian squad in the near future. So it is likely that Australia will be with a foursome of coaches who will present themselves in France in September. With so much ambition…
