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.
