Club president Serge Blanco had been critical of the team's recent performances and the 22-14 defeat to Connacht was the last straw for Blanco, whose team are now nine points behind pool leaders Harlequins.

After a dreadful 2011-12 season, they have not been much better in this campaign and are currently mid-table in the Top 14.

They will host Connacht in their return match this weekend at the Parc des Sports Aguilera with Laurent Rodriguez taking temporary charge.
