Rugby-Ford leaves Toulon, Cockerill takes over - club

PARIS, April 4 (Reuters) - Head coach Mike Ford has left French rugby club RC Toulon by mutual consent and is being replaced by fellow Englishman Richard Cockerill, the Top 14 club said on Tuesday.

Ford, 51, had been given the job last October but failed to make an impact as Toulon were knocked out of the Champions Cup quarter-finals by Clermont last weekend. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Peter Rutherford)
