NEWS: Laurent Labit and Laurent Travers, who led Racing 92 to a Top 14 title and the European Champions Cup Final in 2016, have extended their contracts with the Paris club by two years until 2021.

Labit and Travers arrived at Racing in 2013, having previously worked together at Montauban and Castres, but are having to manage a faltering team after last season's sterling efforts.

The Parisians are out of European action after having suffered five defeats in their six pool matches, while they also stand 10th in the Top 14, well off the top six that go on to compete in the season-ending play-offs.

The extension of the coaching duo's contracts was, said Racing president Jacky Lorenzetti, "a strong signal in a tough sporting moment".
