Although their has been a few candidates for the Ass of the Week we had to give it to Springbok coach Allister Coetzee.
Coetzee had allot to say about continuity and trying to convince supporters and most properly himself on certain selections he made for the Irish team.
When asked why Frans Steyn and Vermeulen was not part of the group he pointed out not enough time for them to fit in from a Monday to match day.
A week later Vermeulen is added to the squad on the Monday before the French test.
Most people all over social media predicted that De Allende will fail and he failed miserably against the Irish. Coetzee pointed out to the media when asked before the tour why a player like Janse van Rensburg was not included, that he did not played enough.
Contradicting statement when he picked De Allende who has played less rugby than Rohan.
What is beyond most supporters was to see Coetzee having no plan B against the Irish.
In the first half he clearly instructed his players to play the short ball around the pillars as they did against the All Blacks at Newlands but what Mr Coetzee did not expect was that the Irish management would have looked at that test and worked out the Springboks game.
He also clearly instructed his players to kick the ball in the hope that they can turn ball over from which they can attack but that instruction he gave to his halfbacks who is know to play direct attacking rugby
The worst part is that Mr Coetzee could not realized that his game is founded out and change it at the break, but then again he most properly was so naive to think that he did not need a plan B.
So for having not do proper planning, selecting players out of position, selecting out-of-from players and just having a crappy game plan Mr Coetzee earns the reward as the Jackass of the Week.
