South Africa coach Coetzee won’t give up

South Africa head coach Allister Coetzee has defied calls to quit after the worst year in South African Rugby history.

Speaking at the press-conference on Monday he was determined to fix the problem.

“I’ve been appointed to 2019, ” he said.

“I want to make sure that when I leave I do so with a firm, concrete, tangible blueprint in place for how the Springboks must be run. Sometimes things have got to go as low as they can before they can go upwards again.

“We’ve got six months until we get back together again and need to spend that time wisely, planning for how we’re going to get back to the top,” he added.
