Cape Town - Former Springbok prop Os du Randt is set to return to South Africa following a coaching tenure in Japan.
Du Randt has been the forwards coach of the Toyota Verblitz club since 2015.
The 44-year-old told Netwerk24 that his contract has expired and while the club offered him a new deal, a compromise could not be found.
He will return to South Africa next month.
Du Randt was the Cheetahs’ forwards coach for a number of seasons before he left for Japan.
Upon his return to South Africa, he hopes to stay involved in rugby on a consultancy basis.
Du Randt played 80 Tests for the Springboks and won two Rugby World Cups with the team - in 1995 and 2007.
