Modiba to coach Boland
- 14 Dec 2016
Boland have appointed Randall Modiba as head coach until the end of the 2018 season.
Modiba, who was the team's defence coach during the 2016 Currie Cup Qualifiers, and the attack and backline coach in the Premier Division, takes over from Brent Janse van Rensburg, who resigned two months ago.
The Boland Rugby Union confirmed on Monday that Modiba had signed a two-year deal, effective from 1 January. He will be assisted by Henley du Plessis, Jacques du Toit and Dunia Mouneimne.
'My primary purpose will be to help take Boland rugby to greater heights,' said Modiba.
'This means that my work won’t end with the Cavaliers, but to ensure we work and develop all the talented players within the union's club structures.'

Bok coaches in deep denial
Allister Coetzee and Brendan Venter's comments since the Springboks' record 57-0 loss to the All Blacks are as concerning as the performance itself, writes SIMON BORCHARDT.
Treat the cause, not the symptom
The Springboks’ blowout against the All Blacks on Saturday is simply a microcosm of a far greater problem facing South African rugby, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
No defence for shameful Bok showing
The Springbok coaching team, as well as the players must be held accountable for the worst Test performance in South African rugby history, writes JON CARDINELLI.
