Cape Town - Minister of Sport and Recreation South Africa, Fikile Mbalula, has welcomed the appointment of Allister Coetzee as the new Springboks coach.

Speaking at a Press Conference to announce the coach, Mbalula said the appointment was a great moment to move rugby forward.

“The appointment of Mr Coetzee is historic and I congratulate and wish him well on his tenure as the coach of our Springboks. Mr Coetzee has an impeccable experience record on the field as a player and off the field as a coach. I trust that SARU has familiarised him with our Transformation Agreement and the expectation from its implementation. The coach will need a lot of support and I urge all South Africans to support their team and its coach in both difficult and good times. Mr Coetzee has my unreserved support,” Mbalula said.
