Conor O & # 39; Shea must be replaced as the Italian main feature of the Rugby World Cup. Cheetahs director of rugby Franco Smith will replace him, the South African club announced Tuesday.
He will take over from January 2020, even though the Italian federation has not yet been able to announce the change of management itself. They have not yet revealed what role R & # 39; Shea will resume with them from next year.
Although he had not won a single Six Nations battle in his three years since taking over in Rome in 2016, the Irish watched a famous victory over South Africa in his first year's responsibility. While Italian clubs have grown much more competitive in Pro14.
Smith is a former Springbok and trained Treviso from 2007 to 2013 and will remain with Cheetahs for the remainder of 2019 before taking over in Italy.
