Reece returns – updated

Hugh Reece-Edwards will be assisting with the Sharks’ backline this Super 14, according to a news report.

The former head coach, fired after a disastrous 2000 Super 12 campaign (the Sharks finished last) has been recruited by his old mate John Plumtree. According to an official announcement on the Sharks website, Reece-Edwards will operate as a “consultant”, specialising in backline play. I guess this means that Chris Boyd will still be the official backline coach and goodness only knows what Grant Bashford’s role will be.

Reece-Edwards, capped 165 times and only recently supplanted by Albert van den Berg as the most-capped Shark of all time, was Springbok backline coach in 1997. Recent revelations in John Smit’s book reveal that the 2000 Super 14 campaign was derailed by Ollie le Roux and certain other senior players undermining the coach and putting their own objectives ahead of those of the team. It’s taken a long time for Reece to make his comeback – up until recently, he’s been the head coach at Westville.

It’s good to have you back, Reece. We’ll give further details about this as they emerge.

    @Original Pierre (Comment 12) : I don’t think Reece was ever really cut out to be head coach, but the Sharks backline looked great when he was Mac’s assistant, as did the Boks when he was backline coach in 97.

    Hey rob, you know I dont like getting personal about players but in Ollies case I am willing to make an exception. I think he is a #$% &^$%.

    I heard an interview with him and it came out that he is a big reader of books, he came across very well in the interview.

    But not a fan.

  • @willa (Comment 86) : interesting stat, but what are you trying to point out? Yes, I know Spencer has won the Super 12 3 times. But the last time was 7 years ago. His current form isn’t deemed good enough to be first choice at Gloucester!

    Funny!!

    The thing is, when Hougie first burst onto the scene he is just brilliant (as a 19 year old)

    He should definitely have been a Bok at that stage and went to the 2003 RWC on merit.

    What should be questioned is why were Louis Skoen and Braam Van Stadig Boks?? :twisted: :lol:
