Senior Team coaching staff
Ioan Doja is the Senior team co-trainer.
Ioan played back-row, and captained the Romanian national team (he has 16 caps, and played in the World Cup). He has been living near Oyonnax for the past decade. He started playing his club rugby in Romania, but was recruited by Oyonnax where he played for a number of years. He went on to train the Oyonnax junior squad, before being recruited by Nantua as a player-coach. He took Nantua from Promotion d'Honneurs division up to Federale 3 in three years (equivalent to one promotion each year for three years). He has taken a break from rugby the last two years, and has been wanting to return. He has accepted the challenge we have offered him, and is looking forward to it with excitement.
