Peter De Villiers’ job not on the line

Peter de Villiers has been given a vote of confidence by his employers at the South African Rugby Union and assured that his job is safe.

The Springboks coach has faced a barrage of criticism following a dismal run of three straight defeats.

All the losses were in the Tri-Nations and have left the defending champions playing only for pride in their remaining three games, all of which are on home soil.

De Villiers is due to meet with senior SARU officials in the next 48 hours to discuss the tour to New Zealand and Australia, but ahead of the talks he has been given full backing.

“There is a lot of wrong that needs to be made right after the bad start to the Tri-Nations,” SARU president Oregan Hoskins told Business Day.

“But that doesn’t mean that we don’t support the coach.

“We are meeting the coach to hear what went wrong and what needs to be done going forward.

“But again, he has our full backing.”

Meanwhile, the world champions have been hit by a further injury setback after news that lock Andries Bekker is likely to miss the remainder of the season.

The Stormers forward is to undergo surgery after a recurrence of a back problem, which will keep him out for up to four months.

Bekker joins scrum-half Fourie du Preez and flanker Heinrich Brussow on the sidelines. The pair are also out until the new year after operations of their own.

  • Continuity is important. I think we should win at least 2 of the 3 remaining tests.
    Div still has a very good record.
    He just needs to keep his opinions to himself and let someone else handle the media.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 6) : It is really exciting, I watched him play for Toulon quite a bit. He has so much talent and isn’t afraid to take the big hits – PLUS he hangs onto the ball.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 6) : Can ONE player really be THAT brilliant… he’d have to be better than Dan Carter and Jonah Lomu (of old) combined the way you guys are carrying on?
