You may not be familiar Mitchell Stephens Youth jersey with the French coach currently in charge of Bandon RFC and the head of rugby at Bandon Grammer School, but Irish supporters will likely come across the former flanker next year when he takes up the role of co-head coach at Toulouse, his old club.
Sonnes will join one of the giants of world rugby to work with current boss Ugo Mola in a similar dynamic to Les Deux Laurents, Labit and Travers, who head up Racing 92.
