Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers (:troll14:)  has been mentioned as a possible successor to Brent Janse van Rensburg as Boland Cavaliers coach.


Boland received another setback earlier this week when Janse van Rensburg quit his role under mysterious circumstances.

It came after Boland’s director of rugby, Alan Zondagh,quit last week, citing political interference from the union’s board as a reason for his departure.

According to Netwerk24, De Villiers – who coached the Boks between 2008 and 2011 – has again been linked with the job.

He currently works in Namibia as a development coach for the local financial provider Trustco’s Centre of Excellence.

This is not the first time De Villiers has been linked to the Boland head coaching role. In May last year it was also reported that he could become Boland coach, before Dewey Swartbooi got the nod for last year’s Currie Cup.

When Swartbooi quit Boland for a job at the Bulls late last year, Janse van Rensburg was roped in after resigning at the financially stricken EP King

  1. @Benedict Chanakira: Yeah, I’d love to sit and have an interview with the guy. He is a legend. Not as bad a coach as a lot of people make him out to be either. Don’t understand Cab’s love affair with him, as his favorite game plan was the Kick and chase. He could be of great help at the Boks now though.

  2. There must be a reason not one single top tier or even second tier team in world (or South African) rugby provincial competitions would not want an ex Bok coach…

  3. Forget the quotes, they didn’t make Ali the greatest – they were just the icing on the cake.

    3-zip clean sweep of NZ, no team has ever done that in modern era. not one. None. He is the Greatest we’ve ever had. Long live the Great One.

  4. He gave them the talk, got on the plane, drilled them 3-love, game set and match and then got back on the plane.

    Those kiwis still got psychological scars from that tour. McCAw says it was beast team he ever played against. No shit Sherlock. That is how Bokke teams should tour.

  5. @cab:

    2009 Tri Nations vs All Blacks when the Boks won 3-0:

    First test was played in Bloemfontein, second teat was played in Durban, only the third teat was played in Hamilton NZ.

    Not sure what “tour” you are talking about and what plane Divvy got on exactly.
