John Mitchell, who has taken over as head coach of the franchise, has announced an extended training squad ahead of next year's competition while the Bulls coaching teams have also been confirmed. 

For Marais, the fall from the top of the pile is noticeable. 

After a string of poor results in 2017 he was sacked as Super Rugby coach before the back-end of the season before he suffered the same fate as the Blue Bulls' Currie Cup coach this year. 

The union has confirmed that Marais still has a significant role to play, and that role has become clearer with the news that he will be working with the youngsters.
