The Springboks announced that Swys de Bruin requested to be released from his role as attack consultant to the Springboks for personal and medical reasons.

“Swys made a great contribution to the squad in his time with us and I’d like to thank him on behalf of his fellow management and the players he has worked with in the past 12 months,” said Rassie Erasmus, SA Rugby’s director of rugby.

He brought a fresh perspective to one facet of the game and he’ll be hard to replace. I’d also like to thank the Lions Company PTY for releasing him to us and SA Rugby for supporting his appointment.”

Erasmus said he would consider a number of options before naming a specialist replacement coach on a short-term basis.

Erasmus said: “This was not something we were expecting but our planning has been thorough and it’s something we can manage.”

De Bruin wished the Springboks and management well in their effort to win the World Cup.

Saturday’s match against Argentina kicks off at 17h05 and tickets are available from www.ticketpro.co.za and the Loftus Versfeld ticket office.
