There it’s finished. Bernard Laporte resigned from the presidency of the French Rugby Federation (FFR) this Friday, indicate several media including Noon Olympic. The boss of French rugby, elected in October 2020, made his decision known during the FFR steering committee in Marcoussis (Essonne), from which he was physically absent.

Withdrawn since mid-December due to his problems with the law, Laporte suffered a huge snub on Thursday, which precipitated his decision. While he had proposed the name of Patrick Buisson as deputy president, to replace him until he knew the result of the appeal of his two-year suspended prison sentence, 51% of the clubs consulted voted “no”.
