Former England head coach Stuart Lancaster has been named head coach of Racing 92 for the 2019 season, the Irish province announced on Monday.

Lancaster, 52, led his country to a pool stage exit on home soil in the 2015 Rugby World Cup before moving to Dublin as a senior coach a year later.

“Initially it was for one season and here I am entering my seventh, which is a reflection on all the players past and present I have worked with, as well as the people of Leinster and Ireland who have made me and my family feel so welcome,” Lancaster said in a statement released by Leinster.

“I’ve always wanted to challenge myself as a coach in different ways, and the opportunity to coach in France at a club like Racing 92 is an exciting one,” he added.
