Some site members claim that Stick would be the new head coach without producing any real evidence to support their statement.
Then there was the Jones issue - which I repeatedly raised as a possibility because of his working together with Erasmus and apparently have the same approach to rugby "science" as Erasmus has. Erasmus apparently brought him on board in the WC coaching complement after the departure of De Bruin. Why would Erasmus has done that.
Them there was a newspaper report that the new Chief Coach will be Nienaber and even though it is widely known that Nienaber has close friendship ties with Erasmus and worked with him in the coaching area as well there was no real evidence about his appointment, Does Nienaber actually wants the job? Nobody knows.
The latest name to be added to the list is John Plumtree who was a successful coach at the Shark and the forwards coach for the Irish when they beat the AB's in two tests and is now with the Hurricanes as Head Coach, Out of the blue the latest newspaper report refers to him as potential Chief Coach, The really interesting question is - why was Plumtree in SA for the whole WC and constantly in the panel discussions of Supersport dealing with the WC?
Nobody knows - the above all seems to be based on rumours and one really does not know what Erasmus would do about the Chief Coach story or even the coaching team as a whole. Hope we get an answer soon - since delay in appointments in the past detrimentally affected the Springboks in the June test series.
