South Africa Rugby Unveils New Coaching Team for Springboks

During a media event in Cape Town, the South African Rugby Union revealed their newly revised coaching staff for the Springbok side. The announcement is a key milestone as the Springboks prepare for the next four years of new leadership.

Rassie Erasmus, the head coach of the South African rugby team, thanked supporters for their unflinching support amid difficult times, particularly following the 2019 World Cup. He acknowledged the coaching staff’s trust and stressed the team’s determination to take a new direction. Erasmus also mentioned the arrival of new coaching talent and the departure of two coaches, highlighting the possibility of their comeback in the future.

Tony Brown, a former All Blacks player, joins the coaching staff as the SA Rugby Attack coach. Brown acknowledged his pride in joining the Springboks and adding to the team’s great legacy, citing global acclaim for the Springboks’ style of play.

Jerry Flannery, a former Irish and British Lions player, has been hired as the new South African Rugby Defence coach, adding to the coaching staff’s expertise.

The coaching upheaval follows Jacques Nienaber’s departure to Leinster, clearing the way for Erasmus’ return as head coach. Erasmus previously led the Springboks to victory in the 2019 World Cup and served as director of rugby for their successful title defense in France in October.
