SA Rugby “part-ways” with Springboks coach Allister Coetzee

South African Rugby announced on Friday that it had reached an agreement with Springboks coach Allister Coetzee to part ways with immediate effect.

The organization said its Rugby Department will manage the responsibilities of the Springbok coach, until the national team’s coaching and management group for 2018 is confirmed later this month.

Coetzee and SA Rugby agreed to terminate the relationship after a two-year association.

Allister Coetzee said: “I have always held Springbok rugby dear to my heart and will continue to do so and for that reason I think now is the time the team and me strike out in new directions. I wish Springbok rugby every success in the future – as I have always done.”

The confirmation of the Springbok management set-up is due to be completed before the end of February.
