Dobson signs new WP contract

2012-05-29 14:57

Cape Town - Western Province Vodacom Cup-winning coach John Dobson has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension.

“I am thrilled to be able to confirm that I have committed to WP for another three years. Province rugby has been a big part of my life.” said Dobson on the Stormers' Facebook page.

“One of my favourite memories as a boy was watching a WP Currie Cup and SA Cup final on the same weekend and I am relishing the prospect of continuing to be part of the growth of Province. The structures, depth, ethos and personnel, that are now already in place, make it a very exciting opportunity,” Dobson added.

WP won this year's Vodacom Cup, beating Griquas 20-18 in the final in Kimberley.

      Ek stem, ek rate nogal vir Dobsen, maar aan die ander kant klink darem of hy WP in sy bloed het.:)

    Oor die jare het ons nou al gesien dat WP se afrigters nie agterspelers kan afrig nie. Hulle rig eerder die rugby uit die mense af. Ons moet miskien in die Vrystaat of in Australie gaan soek vir n agterlyn afrigter. Helgard Muller, David Campese ensovoorts. n Paar jaar terug het Campese by die Sharks afgerig en dit was die dodelikste wat ek ooit hul agterlyn sien funksioneer het. Lambie en Michalak is die spil waarom alles draai. As Campese daar gebly het was die Sharks dalk die Super Rugby kampioene vandag. Dit daar gelaat, moet dit vir die blindste Stormers ondersteuner duidelik wees dat Fleck nie die leier is wat die agterlyn uit die driee woestyn uit gaan lei nie. Juis daarom moet die Stormers dringend aandag gee aan die probleem. Dringend beteken onmiddellik en nie volgende seisoen nie. Insiggewend dat die Sharks gespring het om Frans Steyn n kontrak aan te bied en ek glo die Bulle was ook aan die roer. Dit was seker nuus vir die Stormers om te hoor dat die Sharks Steyn vasgeteken het.

    this is good news for WP. The players talk very highly about him. Having broken a 15 year vodacom cup drought Dobson should be given the Currie Cup to break that 12 year drought. Allister will be exhausted after Super Rugby and its crazy with no break between the seasons and lots of the Vodacom players will pay CC.
