The Bulls have announced that former coach Heyneke Meyer will be their new Director of Rugby.
The new structure at Loftus pretty closely mirrors what Western Province now have in place, with a “hands-off” director looking after play procurement, structures, strategy and the like, while the head coach continues to look after the day-to-day running of the team. Frans Ludeke will continue to handle the daily grind stuff, with Heyneke Meyer plotting another ten years of Bulls supremacy from his old office at Loftus. Frightening stuff.
Head coach Ludeke has also recommitted himself to Blue Bulls, signing a contract extension valid until the end of 2013.
The Lions have, of course, also appointed a Director of Rugby in Dick Muir, but it seems as if his day-to-day involvement in the coaching of the team will be a lot higher than is the case in Cape Town and Pretoria. The Sharks and Free State are still asleep, it would seem.Tweet
