Meyer signs Stade extension

Heyneke Meyer has signed a contract extension with Stade Francais until the end of the 2020-21 Top 14 season, with the option of a further year.

The former South Africa coach was appointed as sporting director and head coach of the Paris club last March.

Stade then brought in Fabrice Landreau as sporting director in January to enable Meyer to focus on coaching.

Meyer’s initial deal was due to expire in June 2020, but Stade on Monday announced that he will stay on for at least a further year.

A 27-23 derby victory at Racing 92 on Sunday kept Meyer’s side firmly in the hunt for a play-off place with two matches of the regular season to play.
