Rugby Coaches and Acting Positions: Three Questions

Some say it is nine years late, and that he should have been given the job when the ‘poisoned chalice’ passed to the ‘quirky’ Pieter de Villiers.In spite of the delay, Coetzee appears upbeat and ready for the challenges…See More

Maritzburg is sometghing of a foreign country to me. I was there last month and managed to get totally lost. I am based in New Germany/ Pinetown, so the Pinecrest Centre in Pinetown would be most convenient.

Hi Ian, yes, I remember those TMS discussions well. I never did hear from Jeanette. It is very exciting that you are now freelancing & consulting and it makes me realise I really need to catch up on this forum more frequently! It would be great to meet up and have a cuppa coffee sometime. All the best!
