    Cape Town - Robbie Fleck has been confirmed as coach of the Stormers' Super Rugby franchise.

    WP Rugby CEO Paul Zacks, confirmed the news at the press conference announcing Western Province Rugby's decision to apply for liquidation of their professional arm, WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd, held at Newlands on Monday afternoon.

    “We hadn’t called an official press conference announcing or introducing (him) yet, but Robbie Fleck is our head coach, and has been appointed for three years.

    “The reason is that from a rugby perspective we’ve had a good look at our rugby structures, the way we play, our culture, our fitness and conditioning.

    “We recognised that there were deficiencies in certain areas, and so Robbie spent a lot of time and effort with our fitness coach, gathering data, intellectual property, information, on our systems and how we can improve going forward.

    “When we are ready, he will present our vision and the way we want to play as Stormers going forward... there will be a massive change to how we want to conduct ourselves on a professional rugby basis.”

    Fleck first coached the franchise on a temporary basis for the 2016 Super Rugby season after Eddie Jones left to take up the England job.
