Bulls consider Meyer’s Bok job

2012-01-25 11:39

The Blue Bulls Rugby Union today confirmed that the South African Rugby Union (Saru) intends to employ their director of rugby, Heyneke Meyer, as the next Springbok coach.

“At a meeting called by Saru on Tuesday, January 24, with the Blue Bulls Company’s board of directors, Saru informed the Blue Bulls board of their intention to offer Heyneke Meyer the position of national coach,” the Blue Bulls said.

The Blue Bulls, however, said it was not in their interests to release Meyer after many “resources and commitments” have been made in order to enable him to fulfil his mandate.

“Should Meyer, however, decide to accept the position of national coach, he needs to inform the Blue Bulls board of his decision to abdicate his responsibilities and commitments to the Blue Bulls.”

Saru will announce the new Springbok coach at a Special General Council meeting on Friday at 2pm.
