Saint-Andre's men did pick up their first point on Saturday following a 13-13 draw in Ireland, but could yet finish with the wooden spoon for the first time since 1999 should they fail to beat Scotland at home this weekend and Italy get something at home to Ireland.
And while no one is hurting more than Saint-Andre about France's poor displays, he is adamant his future is with the national side as he continues on a path to the 2015 World Cup.
"I will of course, as is my nature, assume total responsibility and take the blame for the campaign," he said.
"However, I am here till 2015 and I will not be leaving. Quite the contrary.
"The federation and the committee director gave us a target to prepare for 2015. We will continue to work towards that objective.
"I take the responsibility because I have always done that, I have never tried to shift it on to others in my career.
"Rugby at the highest level is to be a competitor. The more difficult it is the more I like it.
"That is to say that whether there is a defeat, a draw or a victory I will shoulder the responsibility because I do not want to expose my players or staff to danger."
