Cape Town - The Boland Cavaliers are in need of a new coach after Dewey Swartbooi signed a deal with the Blue Bulls.

Swartbooi, a former Boland and Bulls centre, took over as interim head coach of Boland earlier this year when Abe Davids accepted a severance package following a long court battle with the union.

On Monday, Swartbooi’s name was listed as backline coach of the Blue Bulls’ Under-19 team when the union announced its management teams for the 2016 season.

It is believed that the Boland Rugby Union was not aware the he had signed a deal with the Bulls.

Boland had a torrid season, finishing second from bottom in the Currie First Division, with only two wins from 10 matches.
