South Africa's Super Rugby
coaches have committed their support to Springbok Coach Allister Coetzee. Blue
Bulls Coach Nollis Marais says he and other coaches have already discussed
plans on the way forward.
The Bulls face the Reds this
weekend in a crucial Super Rugby encounter. But once Springbok rugby takes
centre stage local coaches will help where they can.
Coetzee wants to place the
emphasis more on the team’s attack strategy, and in particular decision-making.
This was a point that his predecessor Heyneke Meyer also complained about, that
players fall back into a mindset if they are placed under pressure.
“It is great to see that all coaches at Super Rugby level has this
awareness that we need to brush up on our attack. That is the one element we
need, we can pressurise with defence and with kicking, but we don’t execute yet
with ball in hand”, Coetzee explained.
