Cape Town - Pote Human is reportedly the favourite to be named as the Blue Bulls’ Currie Cup coach.

Nollis Marais started last year’s Currie Cup campaign as the Blue Bulls' head coach, but indifferent performances saw him granted ‘leave’ for the remainder of the season, with executive of rugby John Mitchell taking over the coaching responsibilities for the remainder of the tournament.

Mitchell is currently the head coach of the Bulls’ Super Rugby team and will not coach the Currie Cup side this year.

According to Netwerk24, Human, a current assistant coach to the Bulls' Super Rugby side, is the favourite to take the helm.

Human’s appointment is expected to be approved at a Blue Bulls Rugby Union meeting on Wednesday.

During the Currie Cup season Mitchell will be afforded the opportunity to work on the junior structures at the union, the report on the Afrikaans website added.

Marais, meanwhile, is currently the coach of the Blue Bulls’ under-19 team.

A report late last year indicated that he would earn a monthly salary of R275 000 per month, despite no longer being involved with the union’s senior teams.

David Manuel is in charge of the Blue Bulls' SuperSport Rugby Challenge and under-21 teams.
