John Hall, who retired as Bath's captain in May, has been appointed to the newly created post of team manager.

Hall, who led Bath to the 1994 double and the 1995 Pilkington Cup during his two years in charge, will work in the unpaid post alongside a former colleague because Richard Hill becomes the chairman of selectors. Hall's replacement as captain is the England centre Phil de Glanville, while Brian Ashton remains club coach.

The French World Cup pair, Thierry Lacroix and Olivier Roumat, are set to join Natal next week.
