'Liefling' back at Loftus
Cape Town - Former Springbok flyhalf Derick Hougaard
is set be appointed in a coaching capacity at his old team, the Bulls.
An Achilles injury has halted the career of the former "Liefling" of Loftus and according to the Beeld website
, Hougaard is close to signing a coaching deal with his former union. From next year he will work as a kicking consultant for the union's junior teams.
Hougaard, 29, played for the Bulls from 2002-2007 before heading to England where he represented Leicester for two years before joining Saracens in 2009. However, he hasn't played any rugby since 2010 due to the injury.
