Springboks defence guru Jacques Nienaber will be unveiled as the national rugby team’s new head coach this afternoon.
The 47-year-old Nienaber, who has been Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus’ right-hand man for several years, played a crucial role in the Boks’ march to Rugby World Cup glory in Japan last year.

Nienaber became the favourite for the job following the World Cup when Erasmus made it clear he would not stay on in the head coaching role - the position he only temporarily filled since taking up SA Rugby’s Director of Rugby role at the national body since rejoining the body in 2018.

Nienaber and Erasmus’ paths first crossed when they were both in the defence force in Bloemfontein and both were involved in Free State rugby in the mid to late 1990s.

They later also worked together at Western Province and the Stormers and also at Munster in Ireland, from where they joined SA Rugby two years ago.

Before Nienaber became a world renowned defence coach, he specialised in strength and conditioning and physiotherapy.

Erasmus, who masterminded the Boks’ triumph in Japan, will continue to work closely with Nienaber and the national team, but he’ll play more of a support and advisory role to enable him to focus more closely on all of SA Rugby’s structures and competitions.

Likely to be named as new members of the Boks’ management team today are Deon Davids and Daan Human, both of whom are set to fill roles among the forwards.

Davids, who previously worked at the Southern Kings, the SWD Eagles and Boland and also assisted at national junior levels, spent much of the last year shadowing Erasmus and his coaching team.

Human will join the Boks as a scrum consultant in place of Matt Proudfoot, whose contract with SA Rugby expired after the World Cup. He has subsequently joined Eddie Jones’ England coaching staff.

The rest of the coaching team that was part of the World Cup-winning squad, including backs assistant Mzwandile Stick, will stay on in their current roles.

Maar Rassie bly puppet master

Speaking in his capacity as SA Rugby’s director of rugby, Erasmus said: ‘Jacques is highly experienced and has worked with the Springboks on three separate occasions now so knows exactly what the job is about.’

‘Jacques will be responsible for the Test match preparation and day-to-day team operations but, as the director of rugby, I will be with the team for the majority of the time and in the coaches’ box with Jacques at matches.

‘I’ll still be responsible for the strategy and results with Jacques taking operational control. The structure allows the director of rugby to spend more time on other aspects of the role.’

Ek is eerlikwaar baie happy met hierdie. Minder stress vir Rassie wat duidelik nie van die spotlight hou nie en meer tyd vir hom om aandag aan die franchises, ontwikkeling, ens te gee. Kom ons gee dit n kans. Vir die eerste keer ooit na n wêreldbeker wen het ons bietjie kontinuïteit. Kan seker nie slegter gaan as 2016. En die eerste paar games (Georgia en Skotland) sal hulle tyd gee om te settle in hul nuwe posisies.

My enigste probleem is die duidelike voorkeer wat die Stormers/ Wp kry by Rassie en Nienaber... So ons gaan nog vir 4 jaar 'n Springbok span sien wat 60% Stormer spelers bevat terwyl daar spelers in ander provinsies is wat beter is en nooit 'n kans kry nie.

Solank die Bokke aanhou wen het ek nie 'n saak wie die afrigters of die puppet master is nie.

Ek stem saam met albei van julle. Ja Witboer, ek like ook nie die voorkeur wat die Stormers spelers kry nie, maar as die spelers Rassie se patroon pas en soos Goue Leeu sê die Bokke aanhou wen, kan ons nie te veel kla nie. As die Bokke wen, sal belangstelling in Rugby meer word en dit eventually tot meer toeskouers vir die Leeus se games ook lei.

Maar dit sou ook pretty crazy wees om te verander en n afrigter van oorsee te kry (of wherever) net om te "change for the sake of change".
