Very strong squad. Vermeulen will make a big difference to a back row which has lacked a ball carrier.

Quote:
Deon Davids, Victor Matfield and Pote Human have been shortlisted by the Bulls to become their new Super Rugby head coach.

The shortlist was announced after the annual board meeting of the Blue Bulls Company and after weeks of consultation conducted by a recommendation panel acting in an advisory role to the board.

https://www.sarugbymag.co.za/bulls-narrow-head-coach-shortlist/

Quote:
The Kings have had no communication with the Bulls about the possibility of coach Deon Davids joining the Pretoria-based franchise.

The Bulls announced on Monday that Davids, Victor Matfield and Pote Human were on a shortlist to replace John Mitchell as their Super Rugby coach.

‘While the Southern Kings have learnt via media reports that Davids has been shortlisted for the position, there has been no official communication to the franchise to this effect,’ read a Kings statement.

Kings chief operating officer Charl Crous added: ‘There has not been a formal offer that has been brought forward. Any such offer will have to be presented to the Southern Kings board for their consideration. Deon Davids remains contracted with the Southern Kings until 30 June 2020.’

To pay out Davids contract from the Kings is small change compare to John Mitchells commands.

Kings will accept any offer, they need money badly.

Davids appointment will be politic correct for the Bulls. Plus he is a very good coach.

Matfield know the culture (for what is left) but with Brits and Vermeulen in the team, you obvious dont have to get an expert.

Here are the merits of each candidate.

MATFIELD

Current job: Employed in private sector; Analyst at SuperSport

Coaching pedigree: Forwards and attack coach for Bulls (2013), Forwards coach for Lions (2017 Currie Cup)

Accolades: None

Pros: He’s known for possessing one of the sharpest rugby brains in South Africa, something that stood out during his 127-Test career. If he’s serious about taking the job, he’d certainly be keen to be given an extended run to show his credentials. Having Erasmus as an overseer could provide him with a valuable safety net.

Cons: Sometimes accused of still having too many interests outside of rugby. Suspicions persist that he’s possibly a former player who’s not effective at transferring knowledge to players in a formal environment.

HUMAN

Current job: Stand-in head coach of the Bulls (2018-present)

Coaching pedigree: Head coach of Blue Bulls (2005-2006; 2018), Assistant coach of Bulls (2005-2008, 2017-2018), Head coach of Griquas (2012-2013), Forwards coach of Ricoh Black Rams (Japan, 2008-2010), Head coach of Tuks (2014-2017)

Accolades: Currie Cup title (2006); Varsity Cup title (2017)

Pros: Knows the structures put in place by former director of rugby John Mitchell inside-out. Vast experience and also showed that he can be his proverbial own man during the Currie Cup (a good example being his handling of Embrose Papier). Genial nature seems suited to a young group.

Cons: Lacks star power and perhaps also proven experience as he’s never been a head coach at Super Rugby level.

DAVIDS

Current job: Head coach of the Southern Kings (2016-present)

Coaching pedigree: Head coach of Southern Kings (2016-present), Head coach of Boland (2007-2009), Assistant Coach of Junior Springboks (2009), Assistant coach of Emerging Springboks (2009), Various age-group positions.

Accolades: None.

Pros: Intimate knowledge of what is required to coach at Super Rugby level, especially with limited resources. Balanced coaching philosophy. Apparently more than willing to work in conjunction with Erasmus in terms of national interest.

Cons: Untested in bringing a stronger group of players together and stamping his authority. Not necessarily familiar with the more subtle aspects of union politics.

I wouldn't take one of them. Jake White is the only other coach who would probably be interested.

I heard Muller was (is) a champion sprinter. Is this true? I Saw no sign of it in the JWC but he was still probably the best forward based on his tight, grunt work alone.

They are all good athletes.

I remember this poster stir a lot of Paarl Boishaaiers at interschools when he captained Paarl Gym in 2016

Quote:
HIERDIE week was twee van die Paarl se top-hoërskoolrugbyspelers in die spervuur oor ’n beweerde rassistiese voorval in die aanloop tot hul interskole-kragmeting gister.

Dit was nadat ’n plakkaat wat aandui dat ’n Moslem-rugbyspeler aan Isis behoort, in een van die gange by die Paarl Gimnasium opgeplak was. Die plakkaat het gelees: “Is jy bang vir ISIS?”

Die o. 19A-rugbykaptein van die Höer Jongenskool Paarl, Salmaan Moerat, antwoord: “ISIS, huhh?

Waarop Muller Uys, Gimnasium se kaptein, weer sê: “Jy bedoel, Uysis!”

Gim se hoof, Eddie Bateman, het in ’n verklaring gesê: “Paarl Gimna­sium distansieer hom ten sterkste van enige vorm van diskriminasie en betreur enige optrede wat daartoe kan lei dat die instansie uitgebeeld word as onverdraagsaam of onsensitief.

Betroubare
“Die skool se leierskorps het geen kennis daarvan gedra dat die twee individue in hul persoonlike hoedanigheid op ’n ondeurdagte en onvanpaste wyse opgetree het nie. Die nodige proses van regstellende optrede is reeds in werking gestel.”

Verder het ’n betroubare ingeligte vertel van ’n voorval waar ’n rugbyafrigter by Gim, ene mnr. Franco, een van die o. 14-spelers, Marco Adendorf, geklap het.

Die afrigter het in ’n string boodskappe die leerder gesmeek om hom te vergewe en niemand daarvan te vertel nie, maar die leerder het die afrigter na sy ouers verwys.

Bateman het nie op Son op Sondag se navrae daaroor gereageer nie.

Jessica Shelver, woordvoerder van Debbie Schäfer, die Wes-Kaapse minister van onderwys, het in reaksie op die twee voorvalle gesê: “Ons beskou bewerings van rassisme in ’n baie ernstige lig.

“Ons kringbestuurder vir die betrokke skool is nie bewus van hierdie voorvalle nie, maar ons sal Woensdag met hom opvolg wanneer die skole weer oopmaak.”

Springbok fullback Willie le Roux is set to hold talks about his future with English club Wasps.

According to Rapport newspaper, Le Roux will sit down with Wasps coach Dai Young to decide his future. His contract expires at the end of the current European season.

Le Roux has missed a good portion of the Premiership season while on Springbok duty and Wasps take a part of his salary every time he plays a Test, leading to tension between the two parties.

The Bulls, who have already signed Bok No 8 Duane Vermeulen, are interested in Le Roux. The new Bulls coach, expected to be either Victor Matfield or Deon Davids, will be assisted by Bok coach Rassie Erasmus during the 2019 Super Rugby season.

There is a theme emerging here. All the top players are opting to move to the Bulls. Noone wants to go to the Stormers. Bulls look set to be a force next year. If the Sharks and Lions continue their form and the Bulls become contenders the Stormers will once again become our wooden Spoon side. The Cheetahs of the new format Super rugby

Rassie will be the de facto Bulls coach so SARU is sponsoring them

The Blue Bulls Company was able to report a R2-million profit in 2018 thanks to the £200,000 it received from the England RFU.

Former Bulls executive of rugby and head coach John Mitchell left the union in September to become England’s defence coach, with the Bulls receiving around R3.5-million in compensation.

The Blue Bulls Company reported a loss of nearly R30-million in 2017.

According to Netwerk24, this big financial turnaround can also be attributed to other factors, including the retrenchments of coaches and office personnel, good financial management, and profits made from the sold-out Springboks vs All Blacks Test.

Jensra said SARU is sponsoring them. What he means by that ... I do not know.
But they made money from the sale of John Mitchell ... and Test tickets.

The word is that Victor Matfield will bring in Fourie du Preez as assistant coach, which will make one heck of a difference. Both are very very popular, highly regarded in Pretoria.
But Big Vic still needs the appointment as head coach. Or ANY coach.

Victor has coached the Springboks already...you dont get higher as a head coach than that.

I only asume that SARU will have them on a Bok contract, to fund their salaries in part. Same as will all the other Boks on contract

:lol:

SARU will not pay Victor and Fourie a cent. Boks will receive the new version of the top-up contract (if it will still exist, which I doubt)
Or maybe SARU will grant some extra monies under other guises to the Bulls, they need them .. .

Sorry, I thought you meant Duane, Shalk and Willie (?)

Never said SARU will pay for the Bulls coaches, only that Rassie will be quite involved according to reports

OK. No skin off any nose.

AFAIR they said that SARU wants to pay mostly (highly elevated) match fees to Boks, a very much lower salary/retainer, and curtail the top-up programs. To ensure Boks will be injury free, and willing/able/uncommitted to club games, to play tests. Thus paying only players who deliver. But I do not know if they implemented that yet.
And thus avoiding the subsidising of unions/franchises to sign a slew of Boks who sit on the bench/go for surgery/etc. etc. Taking them out of competitions.

No problem if Rassie is involved, the Bulls have a great influence on SA Rugby, and Rassie IS Director of Rugby for the whole country. Maybe we can get a bit closer to a centralised rugby coaching programme ...
