Cape Town - The new Springbok coach will be named officially at a media conference on April 12, Oregan Hoskins, president of SA Rugby, confirmed on Friday.

He made the announcement following the ratification of the coach’s appointment by rugby’s General Council - made up of the 14 member unions of SA Rugby. Ratification by the council is the final step in the constitutional process to appoint a Springbok coach.

Hoskins said that now that the final governance hurdle had been cleared the formal completion of the new coach’s contract and of that of his management team could be completed.

“We are happy to have reached this point and are particularly excited with our final choice,” said Hoskins.

“Today’s ratification triggers the final part of the process. We’re looking forward to being able to confirm our choice publicly.”

Hoskins said that logistical planning was well advanced for the Springbok season and that those plans had already been shared with the preferred candidate.

* Former Stormers coach Allister Coetzee has been widely tipped as the favourite to become Springbok coach.
