National Sevens rugby coach Paul Treu could be lost to the Springbok team at the end of 2010, the Kaapse Son newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Treu said he has to make “vital career decisions” in the next two years.

He also admitted that he had an offer from abroad as well as two within South Africa.

Treu’s big dream is to make South Africa the world champions, but without his strongest side it will stay an uphill battle.

Stefan Basson and MJ Mentz have decided to continue their careers in Italy, while there is no guarantee that the Cheetahs Super 14 franchise will release his latest stars Robert Ebersohn and Wilton Pietersen.

In another blow to his team Treu also admitted that Kabamba Floors has signed a contract with the Cheetahs ruling him out of next season’s international fixtures as well as the World Cup in Dubai from March 5 to 7.

Season after season Treu has to start fresh looking for new talent to replace his generals.

And as the pressure mounts for him to win the George event in December for the first time, Treu has already said it is not going to be easy without so many of his first-choice players.


  • He does seem to be up against it. Considering all the difficulties, he’s done well. :smile:
