Cape Town - There appears to be uncertainty regarding Swys de Bruin's future as Lions head coach.

De Bruin assisted the Springboks last month during their Tests against Wales and England as an attack consultant.

He has since returned to coach the Lions in Super Rugby, but rumours have surfaced that he may join the Boks on a full-time basis.

Afrikaans website Netwerk24 reported on Thursday that a final decision regarding De Bruin’s future at the Lions was yet to be made.
 
And an announcement regarding his future involvement with the Springboks is expected to be made in due course.

For the moment, De Bruin's attention is on his job at the Lions who currently top the South African Conference in Super Rugby by three points.

Their position at the summit is however under threat after losing to the Sharks in Durban last weekend.

The Lions have a bye this weekend and will lose their top spot in the conference if the Jaguares manage to beat the Bulls in Pretoria.

The Lions' final round-robin match is against the Bulls in Johannesburg on July 14.

Dit is geen wonder die span sukkel hierdie jaar nie. Die helfde van die spelers se koppe is reeds oorsee, terwyl die afrigter se kop (en baie van sy tyd) by die bokke is.

Wat sou julle verkies? Soek n nuwe coach of vra Swys om te bly?

Hy is 'n bevoegde hulpafrigter. Groot vraagtekens oor sy  vermoens as hoofrigter. Probleem is dat ons nie 'n oorvloed afrigtingtalent in die land het nie.

Net my persoonlike opinie, maar ek sal nou nie slapelose nagte he as Swys voltyds by die bokke betrek word nie. Soos Emiel noem, hy is 'n baie goeie hulpafrigter, maar as hoofafrigter het hy so ver nog glad nie beindruk nie.
As Swys wel gaan, dink ek dit is nou regtig hoogtyd dat die unie en Jimmy Stonehouse om 'n tafel sit sodat daar 'n plan gemaak kan word om hom by die Leeus te kry.

Ek sit op die heining met hierdie een. Aan die een kant dink ek n nuwe afrigter nou gaan die span en unie nog meer ontwrig as wat dit al klaar is, en gaan hulle weer van voor af moet bou vlg jaar. En Swys het nie TE sleg gedoen in sy eerste jaar nie, hy verdien nog n jaar of 2 kans.

Aan die ander kant het die span maar bietjie teleurgestel vir my, en ek sal nie omgee as ons n hoe profiel internasionale afrigter aanstel.

Ja dis 'n moeilike een, span het beslis vir my teleur gestel en met die klomp ouens wat waai weet ek nie wat op ons wag in 2019 nie.

Bou gaan ons inelkgeval moet bou volgende jaar, so dit is eintlik die ideale geleentheid. Vat die knock nou en kry 'n afrigter wat weet hoe om te bou...

I also have mixed feelings about this. Swys is a nice guy and a great assistant coach. But he has struggled to find his feet as a head coach this year. He will add a new dimension to the Springbok attack and backline play.
If we do need to find a new coach, I think we will need to look overseas. As good a coach as Guns Stonehouse is, I don't think he will fit into the Lions culture.

Does anyone have any ideas of good local coaches who could do the job with the Lions?
Herkie Kruger has done well with the juniors. He could do the job with the senior players.

I think swys can be to emotional! Players need calm coach which can direct them in right direction.

Isn't herkie kruger the supersport team coach? If so, he shouldn't come close to the super rugby team.

I think that if we look within the structures of the Lions, I'd probably go with Philip Lemmer, the forwards coach. Our pack was usually quite good in most games. I also think Forwards tend to make better coaches than backs.

Dit kan tog nie net ons, die gewone ou op straat, wees wie kan sien dat Coach Swys 'n puik tactician en ontleder is, maar nie die beste hoofaftigter nie? Eerder nou begin plan maak, as later. Daar is wel heelwat beserings gewees en baie van die spelers het nie die mas opgekom die seisoen nie, maar soos ons al jare weet van ER se tyd af- die spelers kies nie hulself nie. Daar was bietjie 'n blaps die jaar met te veel lojaliteit vanaf die afrigters teenoor sekere spelers.

As daar waarheid in steek sal dit tien teen een eers bekend gemaak word wanneer ons Super Rugby seisoen afgehandel is. Nou sal nie goeie tydsberekening wees nie.

Die aap is klaar uit die mou gelaat, so te se. Ek sal meer gerus wees as hulle darem net iets se: ja Swys en Saru onderhandel nog en ons wag om te hoor. Of nee Swys bly by ons. Of ja Swys waai ons sal na super rugby begin soek vir nuwe afrigter. 

Gaan jy Donderdag weer na die span aankondiging Tvl?

One thing the union can improve on is their communication with supporters and media..
