MORE FAN VIEWS

HI, Even though it could be a good thing I fear one thing. The true ability of Allister Coetzee and his coaching staff. He is our national coach. He has coached under great coaches like Jake White and has taken the Stormers to SR finals albeit with a defensive gameplan and all of this whilst having people like Rassie in the background......... now he has a support staff that have never even been at this level (and shame on the people who call racism, heres looking at you Simnikiwe Xabanisa from the City Press), and never mind super rugby or CC level, barring Mathew Proudfoot of course.  But if our national coach with more than 10 years of coaching experience has to call a coaching Indaba after one year in service then I cant see anything being fixed.  If he has not learned any sort of style or how to coach players by now then what will this indaba help. I will be crucified for this but all I see is a desperate attempt by the powers that be to bring the so called "white mans sport" into ruin by forcing this pathetic thing they call quota into it, and not so sore on the players but rather the coaches.  A few things we can learn from any other rugby playing nations,   The best man must play and coach,  on merit and not on the colour of his skin.  The government is ruining everything. Leave politics out of sport. Why was AC appointed so late? Why was he given a coaching team and left to choose his own?  This whole appointment smacks of racism and political interference - Richard Eberhard

I think this is great!! South African teams should stop treating rugby like an individual game! It's a team sport, not just for the players but for the different franchises as well! If SA rugby is to succeed we will have to put our differences aside and work together! - Tjaart Eygelaar

Honestly speaking, it is a real disappointment that Nick Mallett is not attending. It's sad because I believe he gives good constructive criticism, but we needed at the Indaba not in the SuperSport Studio. I am proud of all the Rugby brains that have made their way to help the Springbok cause. Let this Indaba be fair and nobody must be fearful. Change is coming. It is exciting - Thuto Sephaphati

SPORT24 FANS SHARE THEIR VIEW

I have to say that, we as a rugby loving and supporting country has to put all our negative thoughts and ways aside when it comes to the bok situation currently. Regardless of the politics involved, we are taking a step in the right direction with regarding to the INDABA. THIS IS NOT A WASTE OF TIME. This to me, shows how much we as SA rugby want to improve our current situation. Instead of everyone (experts) having their say on television or in various media outlets. Attend the INDABA and voice your thoughts and opinions there. Where it actually matters and will make a difference. My head goes off to everyone involve in this. Shows #pride and love for SA Rugby - Riyaan Smith

It will help. The minister of sport should be there and told to back off. Forgive Bismarck, Jannie (and) Frans Steyn.... bring them back. Appoint Mitchell smith and de bruin to help - Peter Gavel

19 Oct 09:19  

NOT A WASTE

So says Sport24 reader Darren Jeftha

If this Indaba can identify the real source of the issues the team has then why would it be considered a waste. As a Bok fan, one with good memory, I remember a time when the Boks weren’t great and how a return to fundamentals brought results. This was also the case in 2006, when we lost five test in a row (one of those a loss to France in Cape Town) and after a regrouping we won the World Cup in 2007.
