Allister Coetzee has been appointed the new head coach of South Africa’s national rugby team.

At the helm, the 52-year old succeeds Heyneke Meyer, who stepped down from the role in December after steering the Springboks to third place at last year’s World Cup in England.

Coetzee is no stranger to the Springbok set-up.

He has previously been a part of the national side’s coaching staff, notably in 2007 when the Boks beat England in France to win the World Cup title – the nation’s second.

His main target now is the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
