Jalabert to replace Moncassin?

Frédéric Moncassin has stepped down as the French national coach, opting to become a director of the recently formed Canadian team Teltek H2O. His decision means France must now fill his position as a national coach, and Laurent Jalabert is tipped to become his successor.

"The federation already asked me in 2004 to be the national coach, but at the time it was a little to early for me," Jalabert told L'Equipe. "The job is interesting, but I have to see if I can combine that with my current activities," he said.

"I see a lot of potential in the French team." Many of France's top professionals have already expressed their support for Jalabert to move into the position.
