Div to launch biography
Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has announced that his biography will soon hit stores.
According to the Sunday Times
, the biography will be published in June.
It is written by rugby writer Gavin Rich and carries a foreword by former Springbok captain John Smit
De Villiers coached the national team from 2008-2011. His most notable achievements while coaching the Boks

Irish Lions in 2009.
Last week it was reported that De Villiers had approached the South African Rugby Union (SARU) about possible work.
De Villiers believes he gained valuable experience during his tenure at
the Boks, which could be useful for the game in South Africa.
"I feel a bit useless at the moment. Sitting back home and nobody shows
