Cape Town - Former Western Province and Free State flyhalf Chris Rossouw has replaced Chean Roux as head rugby coach of the University of Stellenbosch.

According to the Beeld website, Roux coached Maties since 2005, winning three Varsity Cup titles, two national club championships and six WP Super League titles. The 35-year-old Rossouw was their assistant coach for the past year.

Jacques Hanekom from the WP Rugby Institute has also been appointed as forwards coach for next year's Varsity Cup competition.

Rossouw is the younger brother of former Bok wing and current Bulls backline coach Pieter.

Other announcements made by Stellenbosch include Freddie Ferreira (a former WP scrumhalf) succeeding Frikkie Naudé as president, while club manager Belius Potgieter is replaced by Quintin van Rooyen, previously from Fort Hare and Wits.

Former WP captain Charl Cronjé has been made vice-president.

    Where is Chean going?

      He is sick of the choking culture in the Cape. He is going to coach the Limpopo Blou Bulle who are going to play in the Vodacom Cup from next year.

      @aubry - "Roux coached Maties since 2005, winning three Varsity Cup titles, two national club championships and six WP Super League titles." how exactly is winning 11 trophies in 7 years choking?

    Would be awesome if Chean could be WP's new coach.

      Dis hoekom Maties 4 jaar in 'n ry gewen het? Jy weet Maties, Die Universiteit van Stellenbosch. 'n Universiteit is 'n plek waar slim mense gaan, so natuurlik was jy nog nie by een nie.

      @lablue - ag man, let the man be, hy het mos nou die woord choke iewers gehoor en dink dit maak hom nou 'n groot meneer om dit oor en oor te se.

      bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-19 10:04

      Lablue, ek het gerty om toelating te kry, maar toe se hulle ek moet eers my stander 9 klaar maak!!! Geniet jy dit nog in die 3 jaar kurses van stander 8?
