Pretoria - The Blue Bulls Rugby Union (BBRU) on Wednesday confirmed that the South African Rugby Union's (SARU) intent to employ their director of rugby, Heyneke Meyer, as the next Springbok coach.

"At a meeting called by SARU, on Tuesday, January 24, with the Blue Bulls Company's Board of Directors, SARU informed the Blue Bulls Board of their intention to offer Heyneke Meyer the position of national coach," the Blue Bulls said.

The BBRU, however, said it was not in their interests to release Meyer after many "resources and commitments" have been made in order to enable Meyer to fulfil his mandate.

"Should Meyer however decide to accept the position of national coach, he needs to inform the Blue Bulls Board of his decision to abdicate his responsibilities and commitments to the Blue Bulls."

SARU will announce the new Springbok coach at a Special General Council meeting on Friday at 14:00.
