Cape Town - Springbok Sevens assistant coach, Vuyo Zangqa, has informed the South African Rugby Union (SARU) that he will not renew his contract past October 31 and will therefore step down from his current position with the Blitzbokke.

Zangqa was offered an extension on his contract, but has decided to join former coach Paul Treu as his assistant with the Kenyan sevens team.

“We are disappointed to see Vuyo go but we wish him all the best with his career choice,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SARU.

Zangqa thanked SARU for the opportunities afforded to him since 2007, when he made his Springbok Sevens debut as a player.

“I would like to wish the team all of the best for the rest of the Sevens World Series season,” said Zangqa.
