Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has extended Ian McIntosh's tenure as Springbok selector until the end of the 2015 season.
According to Die Burger's website
, this was done at a SARU executive committee meeting held in Cape Town on Thursday.
The Springbok selection committee consists of McIntosh, Peter Jooste (convenor) and Bok coach Heyneke Meyer.
McIntosh, who coached the Sharks to their first-ever Currie Cup title in 1990, was recently honoured
with the International Rugby Board’s (IRB) Vernon Pugh Award for Distinguished Service, recognising his achievement in changing the face of rugby in South Africa.
The IRB noted that McIntosh had been an inspiration to all those who crossed his path in a 50-year involvement and that he remained as passionate about rugby as when he first started out.
McIntosh coached the Springboks in the build-up to the 1995 Rugby World Cup before returning to the Sharks where he retired from top-level coaching in 1999.
Apart from being a Springbok selector, he is also coach of the South African Rugby Legends.
