    'Slaptjips' not leaving Bulls for job at WP

    2015-05-12 08:10

    Cape Town - Pieter Rossouw is not leaving the Bulls for a role at Western Province, WP's Director of Rugby Gert Smal has confirmed.

    The Bulls on Monday confirmed that Rossouw would be leaving them after the completion of this year’s Currie Cup to return to Cape Town.

    The 43-year-old had been backline coach of the Bulls since 2008.

    Rossouw’s move back to the Cape led to rumours that he may have a job lined up at Western Province, the team he represented for most of his playing career.

    “It’s good to hear he wants to come to WP, but there is no vacancy at present. If something comes up, then we’ll look at it,” Smal told Netwerk24.

    “When I was coach, Pieter was a wonderful player to work with. He was always eager to improve and always strived to be the best.”

    Rossouw was a member of the Western Province team that won back-to-back Currie Cup titles in 2000 and 2001 under the tutelage of Smal.

    ‘Slaptjips’ played 43 Tests for the Boks between 1997 and 2003.
