So WP Rugby president Thelo Wakefield will meet with Stormers coach Robbie Fleck and director of rugby Gert Smal on Monday to discuss the team’s woeful performances in Super Rugby this year.
This is very interesting if you think about it…This is the same Wakefield that with De Klerk and Hoskins decided that Mitchell will not be appointed the Stormers coach after Gert Small wanted him.
This is the same Wakefield that appointed Robbie Fleck as the Stormers coach when Fleck was coaching the U21 and they over looked Dobson for the job.
I am sure that De Klerk is very happy that he convince Wakefield not to appoint Micthell after seeing his Lions side rip the Stormers apart over the weekend.
Wakefield is now unhappy and told Netwerk24 that he will be seeking answers from Fleck and Small.
“We can’t afford empty stands at Newlands. We want to sell suites and tickets and build our support base. And we won’t achieve that with the rugby we’ve been playing.”
Wakefield added that a tough draw and injuries cannot be used as an excuse.
It is a bit think I think that he now wants to ask Gert Small about the state of rugby if the Director of Rugby was not given what he wanted.
It is time that Wakefield gets the boot with all his mate’s
