Pretoria - Two of SARU's top brass were spotted at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday, which adds fire to the rumour that Heyneke Meyer will be appointed as the new Springbok coach on Friday.

The Beeld newspaper reports that SARU CEO Jurie Roux and vice president James Stoffberg attended a meeting at Loftus Versfeld with several directors of the Blue Bulls Company.

The main discussion point at this meeting is unknown but negotiations to release Meyer from his contract at the Bulls were probably hot on the agenda.

This comes after Meyer and Roux also met over the weekend, apparently to finalise his contract as Bok coach.

Some directors at the Blue Bulls are still unhappy with Meyer’s departure after he was appointed less than a year ago, but compensation is all that can legally stand between Meyer and his new job.

Further points of discussion were probably to also release two other members of the Bulls' coaching staff.

Meyer apparently wants to take defence coach John McFarland and conditioning expert Basil Carzis with him to the Springboks.

Both McFarland and Carzis have contracts at the Blue Bulls.
