PDV quits as Bok coach


Peter de Villiers called it quits as South Africa coach after the reigining champions lost a World Cup quarterfinal to Australia on Sunday.


“It was a brilliant journey,” said de Villiers, who took over from Jake White following the Springboks’ 2007 World Cup win.

“There’s a time to come and a time to go and I think the journey for me is over,” he added

  1. ja-ja,
    At the very least
    he quit quickly.
    almost as quick as the Bokke’s exit
    in the 2011 world cup.

  2. Rassie and Coetzee will by all indications coach the Boks. Would then not be surprised to see Muir at WP.

    Bok coach should have been H Meyer. Mitchell would be my personal choice but that will never happen. Mitchell will bring the Boks up to a new level of playing the game …. what we desperately need. Unfortunately those running SA rugby are somewhat xenophobic.

  3. rassie is as big a poepol as Poepolpiet.
    As a player his basic skills were never above average.
    He has not coached a win
    on any great international platform.
    In the land of the blind
    the poepol with one eye is king.
    Mallet is the only south african worth a thought.
    Otherwise is must be a Aussie or Kiwi
    sincethey have knobbed us so many times
    that we should talk less about our strenghts
    and listen

  4. I predict AC as the next Bok coach – if he gets the right assistants then we might have a chance. On the bright side maybe Mallet or Venter can take over WP/Stormers :whistling:

  5. having seen the stormers over the past 2 years I will be loath to support the boks even more if they adopt that playing style.

    my backline man is slaptjips. he has to be there. my forwards man is naka.

  6. Mallet in my opinion is a doos royale.

    Can’t deny what he has achieved with them eyeties and his winning run with the Boks and all but as a player I would hate to play under a coach like that. Played under\against a coach like that last year – I’m not a violent man but murder sometimes seems like a good solution…


  7. Ja-ja,
    we need a kiwi or a frog as
    a backline coach,
    natural hands.
    Best side in the world with it.

  8. Methos,
    i agree,
    Nick is a doos.
    But a winner above all.
    A true general.
    Not only with the bokke,
    with the frogs first ever coach to win a frog cup
    in his first year.
    first ever back to back.
    Italy is another example.

    But a nazi to work under,
    thats a general boet.
    I’d rather play for a doos and win
    than play for a great ou
    and lose.
    I like winning.
    I detest losing.

  9. I make a leftfield suggestion that Brenden Venter will be very close to the top of the list…

    My dream team

    Head: Frans Ludeke
    Attack: Slaptjips
    Defence: Jacques Nienaber
    Forwards: Mathew Proudfoot
    Backs: Paul Treu

    I suspect Paul Treu might also be near the top of the list

    AC has too many close ties to Jake… screwed left right and center…

  10. Reply to Boertjie @ 9:34 pm: exactly.

    Snor failed, he did not leave a legacy of players and only had 62% success rate. For the Boks nothing shorts of 80% is acceptable.

    Please not Coetsee, he has not won anything meaningfull to even be considered.

  11. Reply to Ollie @ 7:36 am:

    Mac? You mean Kitch! 100% success rate – the rest are ALL failures according to Kevin.

    This entitlement by some SA fans is ridiculous – probably why they end up bitching when we lose and bitching when we win but not pretty enough :noshake:

  12. oops, always get mixed up between the 2. Indeed, Kitchen Christie. I blame my mistake on the ref

  13. Ja-ja JT,
    who is your we pale-face?
    I play a fair biof sport.
    I rarely lose.
    I don’t play my sport only
    because i like the sport
    but because i like to win at that sport.

  14. A great line in the movie the rock comes to mind when reading these comments.

    Sean Connery you legend!
