“I don’t think that’s going to help,” former Springbok coach Jake White said of an imminent workshop between Allister Coetzee and South Africa’s Super Rugby coaches. “All that you’re going to hear from coaches in the system is exactly the same as what you heard 10 years ago.
“I think our problem is much greater than how we want to play the game. The results we’re getting now is not due to our style, the problem is much bigger than that. Unfortunately these players and this coaching staff are bearing the brunt of decisions that should have been made 10 years ago.”
