The former Springbok wing and coach of the Western Province under 19 team Pieter Rossouw did an amazing job in his two week trial period and has been appointed as the backline coach of the Vodacom Bulls.

Rossouw said he is very excited to coach the Bulls and he is looking forward to the challenges of Super Rugby reports the Bulls Website

“I started coaching when I was still playing because coaches like Gerrit Pool and Alan Zondagh gave a lot of the tactical responsibilities to the senior players.

“In 2006 I coached Majuba Men’s Residence at Stellenbosch and last year I was involved with WP’s Vodacom Cup team as well as the under 19s.”

Rossouw made a huge impact in the two weeks he consulted the Bulls and Frans Ludeke was very impressed by his coaching abilities as well as his people skills.

Ludeke said the players are equally impressed by Rossouw’s contribution and he as well as the team believes Rossouw will be an enormous asset for the Bulls.

Rossouw is contracted by the Bulls till the end of October 2008 and he will also assume responsibility of the Currie Cup team’s backline.


  • What exactly does it take to impress Ludeke, I wonder?

  • hey the Bulls at least had their business head screwed on right.

    Not many unions would first insist on a trial period.

  • Yeah, but it’s not like he’s been really tested yet! Anyway, benefit of the doubt, I guess
