The shortlist will be prepared by the Executive Council (Exco) against identified criteria to fulfil the demanding requirements of the role.

“This is the most important decision we have to make as SARU and appointing the best man for the job is critical,” said Jurie Roux, chief executive officer of SARU.

“The skills and qualities required by a Springbok coach are confined to only a small number of potential candidates.

“Once a shortlist of those available candidates has been identified, the Exco has the freedom to call on outside expertise for final selection. The appointment will then go for ratification by the General Council.”

Roux confirmed that Peter de Villiers would be on the shortlist as the incumbent Springbok coach.

He said that the Exco hoped to confirm an appointment by early in the New Year.
