Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer is reported to be in high demand in Japan.

According to the Rapport newspaper, the Canon Eagles and Docomo Red Hurricanes are both interested in acquiring the services of the former Bok mentor.

Meyer, 48, coached the Springboks from 2012 before stepping down at the end of 2015 following the Springboks’ third place finish at the Rugby World Cup.
