Wel­come home, Al­lis­ter Coetzee!

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

I SUP­PORT the rugby pun­dits’ spec­u­la­tion that for­mer Storm­ers coach Al­lis­ter Coetzee will be­come Spring­bok coach. With a proven track record, Coetzee has the cre­den­tials to take on the gar­gan­tuan task of restor­ing Bok pride and gain much-needed cred­i­bil­ity for the be­lea­guered team. Fur­ther­more, his ap­point­ment will en­dorse trans­for­ma­tion which was a ma­jor con­tentious is­sue dur­ing the Heyneke Meyer era.

Should Coetzee’s bid be suc­cess­ful, his task of lead­ing the Bok team in­cludes se­cur­ing spon­sors which has seen the with­drawal of pre­mium spon­sors Absa and BMW af­ter the Bok’s de­feat by Ar­gentina in the Rugby Cham­pi­onship.

Wel­come home, Al­lis­ter Coetzee!
