Coetzee: WP building for S15
Cape Town - It may be the Currie Cup season now, but Western Province coach Allister Coetzee
says they're already building towards next year's Super Rugby competition.
WP start their Currie Cup campaign at home to the Sharks on Saturday - the team who knocked the Stormers out of this year's Super Rugby competition in the semi-finals.
"We want to do well in the Currie Cup, but the management team sees it as the first phase towards next year's Super Rugby competition," Coetzee told Die Burger
The Stormers topped the overall Super Rugby log but struggled to cross the whitewash in all their games. Despite being the best defensive unit in the competition, they failed to record a single four-try bonus point win and also scored the least amount of tries of all the teams.
But Coetzee insists they won't alter much to their game plan.
"We won 14 out of 17 matches in the Super series - and that shows that there's not much wrong.
"There will be one or two small changes, but we don't need to change a lot," he said.
Their clash against the Sharks at Newlands kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday evening.
