Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has approached the South African Rugby Union (SARU) about possible work.

De Villiers, who coached the Springboks from 2008-2011, spoke to Eyewitness News Sport about the issue.

De Villiers told them he approached SARU over a possible role of working with club coaches.

EWN Sport posted on their twitter page that De Villiers had received no response from SARU about the matter by Tuesday.

"#Boks Peter de Villiers says that he hasn't heard back from #SARU yet over his proposal of working with club coaches," EWN Sport tweeted.

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 interest in trying to draw from experience that I do have," said De Villiers.

De Villiers's most notable achievements while coaching the Springboks were a Tri-Nations trophy and a series victory over the British and Irish Lions in 2009.
