Cape Town - Brent Janse van Rensburg has been appointed as Griquas’ new head coach.

According to Netwerk24, Janse van Rensburg has signed a three-year deal.

He will succeed Peter Engledow after this year’s Currie Cup, after the latter recently signed a deal with Paarl Boys’ High.

Janse van Rensburg recently quit as Pumas coach and there were also rumours that he could become the head of amateur rugby at Eastern Province, while he was also linked to the job in Paarl.

However, the 38-year-old said he was looking forward to joining Griquas. He got the job ahead of Griquas assistant coach Pieter Bergh, Eugene Eloff and Jonathan Mokuena.

“My wife Liezel and I went through a process of elimination. Any move would have had to suit both of us and because of that I withdrew my name from the shortlists for the Paarl Boys’ and Kings vacancies,” he said.

“The freedom and support I’ll receive from the Griquas board was a determining factor as was the union’s assistance to help my wife find a suitable job in Kimberley.”
