Even if Coetzee manage to win against the French, Italians and Wales it does not justify for him to stay in charge of the Springboks.
In fact he should have been showed the door after 2016 but for some reason he put forward some lame excuse of not enough time to plan for 2016.
From day one Coetzee made mistake on mistake at the helm and spread his nonsense around at every press conference to justify his decision making and justify his selections.
Picking the bulk of the Lions stars helped a bit against a poor French side in June but we soon went back to what we saw and got used to from him in 2016.
Manage only two wins in Rugby Championship against the weakest side in the tournament which is the only side worst than the Springboks.
Only he and his two cronies will know why players like De Allende, De Jager, Dreyer, Rhule, Coetzee, Cronje, Jantjies stay in the team and why some of them even stay in this group.
We were told the fairy tale that Coetzee will pick players on form, but these form players are left out of the squad or left signing deals with overseas clubs.
It is not even worth talking about Coetzee game plan, because there is non.
It is not that we do not have quality coaches, we sit with coaches like Ackermann in Europe and Stonehouse in Japan.
Coetzee should have been appointed in the first place on a 1 year deal to be evaluated for extension.
In any team a coach with his record would have been long gone but it seems we except mediocre coaches in our rugby.
Ackermann has taken Gloucester and in a short space of time to number 3 on the Aviva Championship log, only seven points behind the leaders Saracens.
He has proven to be one of the better managers in our system and is a coach that can build on the limitations of players and bring a winning culture back in a team(old school ways).
Coaches that surrounds them with professionals usually succeed. To think for one moment you can get to the top with mediocre assistants and by your own ability is just plain stupid and naive.
SARU needs to get out of their contract with Coetzee and get a coach that can take the Springbok forward. A coach with vision and understanding of the qualities of players and not on reputation.
The only way is to get rid of Coetzee now and give a quality coach all the opportunity to give us firstly an opportunity in 2019 and secondly to get Springbok rugby back to the challenge the best in the world
If Coetzee stays on as coach we most properly will win some matches, may even be able to win a test against the All Blacks, but comes 2019 we will not win the World Cup.
We will still be losing quality players to Europe and Japan but the worst of all of this will be the coach taking over after 2019 will be left worst off than what Meyer left the Boks in 2016.
