    Bulls have sights on Maties coach - report

    2018-05-07 22:37

    Cape Town - The Bulls are reportedly eager to lure Maties coach Hawies Fourie to Pretoria.

    Fourie has coached Maties since 2016 and has transformed the team into a skilful unit that likes to adopt a ball in hand approach.

    Under Fourie’s guidance, Maties reached two consecutive Varsity Cup finals - 2016 and 2017 - before winning the title at their third attempt by thumping Pukke 40-7 in the final last month.

    Afrikaans website Netwerk24 reported on Sunday that the Bulls have been in talks with Fourie to possibly join John Mitchell’s coaching team.

    Mitchell is the Bulls’ executive of rugby, while he also serves as head coach the union’s Super Rugby team.

    The report added that Fourie’s immediate task would be at the Bulls’ junior and SuperSport Rugby Challenge teams.

    He is also viewed as a potential successor for Mitchell with the Super Rugby side.

    Meanwhile, Maties are eager to retain Fourie’s services, with the University of Stellenbosch reportedly busy preparing a new three-year deal.

    Fourie previously coached Boland and Griquas, while he also served as the Cheetahs’ attack and backline coach between 2007 and 2015.
