In a turn which may not come as a surprise to most, SA Rugby has announced the sacking of Springbok coach, Allister Coetzee.
The organisation released a brief statement in which it explained that Coetzee would be parting ways with the team following two years of service.
“First and foremost, we had to asses what is in the best interests of the Springboks”, said CEO of SA Rugby, Jurie Roux.
The recent run of form of the national rugby team, as well as a public disenchantment with the bokke, left the national rugby organisation with little choice. A fact which Coetzee took in good stride.
“I have always held Springbok rugby dear to my heart and will continue to do so and for that reason I think now is the time the team and me strike out in new directions”, expressed Coetzee.
SA rugby is set to take over the ousted coach’s responsibility until they’re able to elect a new coaching and management team.
