Cape Town - The two-day coaching Indaba taking place in Cape Town got off to a "positive" start on Wednesday, with a presentation on "High Performance" from psychologist Pieter Kruger one of the highlights. 

Kruger, who started working with the Springboks as a performance psychologist at the beginning of the 2015 season, also worked with the Lions in their 2014 Currie Cup and Super Rugby campaigns. 

An SA Rugby spokesperson said Kruger's presentation was particularly well received. 

The feedback from the six Super Rugby coaches present was also positive, the spokesperson added, and the engagement between Allister Coetzee, Brendan Venter and the group of 54 delegates made it clear that improving the state of South African rugby was the common goal.

Coetzee had started proceedings by questioning the professionalism of South African rugby while also emphasising the importance of having collaboration between Springbok management and the Super Rugby coaches.

Coetzee had appointed Venter to run the Indaba. 

The two-day think-tank will end on Thursday, and Coetzee will brief media with feedback at 15:30.
