The annual review of the Springboks’ performance in the Vodacom Tri-Nations will be scheduled as per normal with Springbok coach Peter de Villiers for later this month. The review will include all aspects of Springbok performance.
“All rugby followers are extremely disappointed with results in the Vodacom Tri-Nations, as are the Springbok team and management, of course,” said Mr Oregan Hoskins, president of the South African Rugby Union (SARU). “We take the situation very seriously but there is a process in place and we will follow that through.”
Mr Hoskins said that there would be formal discussions with the coach about some of his reported comments. He added that he had written to the family of Johannes Mogale to express the Union’s support and condolences at this time of mourning.
SARU will make no further comment until the review process is complete.
