The opening of the SA Rugby coaching indaba will take place in Cape Town on Wednesday and Thursday next week (19 and 20 October, 2016).

CEOs and coaching staff of all six Vodacom Super Rugby franchises have been invited to attend the two-day event in conjunction with Springbok coaching staff, members of the rugby department of SA Rugby, former Springbok coaches and players and a representative of the MyPlayers, the players’ organisation.

The Indaba is being facilitated by former player and coach, Brendan Venter, and former Springbok team psychologist, Pieter Kruger.

The Indaba will discuss current playing trends across a wide range of areas of game play and seek alignment within SA Rugby on ways to ensure rugby excellence and continuous improvement to remain a top rugby-playing nation.

In addition, SA Rugby will be addressing longer term interventions to assist the Springbok team.
