The Rapport newspaper has reported that SARU and new Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer will meet with Rassie Erasmus this week to discuss his role within the Springbok national team setup.
It is believed that original rumours that Rassie himself denied are true, and that he will be the Springboks’ full time technical analyst. He will be meeting with SARU to discuss his contract.
In further news, it seems as though Sevens coach Paul Treu will be groomed to take over the reigns from Meyer, as he too will be involved in the setup. This will not take him away from his duties as Sevens coach, as the plan still remains for Treu to take the Sevens to the Olympics in 2016.
Meyer is also trying to land his former Bulls assistants roles within the national setup as well. John McFarland (Defence coach), Bazil Carzis (Conditioning coach) and Johann van Graan (Forwards coach) are all rumoured to be approached to assist Meyer, but SARU aren’t all that keen to pay the Bulls more money, after they had to splash out on buying Meyer from his Bulls contract.
Others who have already been identified as potential consultants within the national setup are Victor Matfield (Lineouts) and Louis Koen (Kicking).Tweet
