With Springbok coach Coetzee sending a SOS to SARU in getting experts involved with the Springboks the jury is out on who will actually be able to assist Toetie in the next two test?
Well come to think about it we can look at it in three aspects where he needs assistance, kicking, defense, back line play and in a lesser forward play, hell that is all aspects of the Springboks play.
Kicking have been poor throughout the Springboks test this year and we are not just talking about kicking for points. In some ways kicking out of hand go hand in hand with chasers that put pressure on opposition which was one of the bigger problems for the Boks so far.
I great option for the Boks will be to help Louis Koen as a specialist kicking coach, Braam van Straaten or Percy.
The next one Toetie will need is a backline attacking coach and I have two coaches that I believe will add value to the team. You do not need to look further than Swys De Bruyn and Franco Smith to help sort out our back line play and give Stick the help he need. In fact i will have both or at least one of them indeterminately involved with the Springboks as an consultant.
Defense is a difficult one as I do believe the only problem we have is structure in our defense. And with SARU screwing up the option of Jacques Nienaber we are sitting with a problem as Chean Roux have shown he is not the right man and still need to learn a hell of allot to get from Varsity Cup level to Test level.
It seems the only option here is to get either one of the franchises defensive coaches involved or try and get the respected and experienced John McFarland back.
In the forwards I do not understand why Pieter De Villiers is not pulled into the mix. He works for SARU(Well, for how long we do not know) and he has so much to offer a Springbok scrum who frankly did not yet produced one full 80 minutes this year.
Personally I will add a conditioning coach as well and someone who can sort out the players heads, maybe the coaches as well.
Who do you want to be involved with the Springboks?
