Stormers reshuffle coaching team
- 13 Feb 2018
The Stormers have restructured the roles of their coaching staff ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby campaign.
According to Netwerk24, Paul Treu who was the team's defence coach, is now an assistant coach focusing on the Stormers' attack until the third phase, while on defence he is responsible for the first phase until the set pieces.
Paul Feeney's role has changed from backline and skills coach to attack and defence coach from unstructured play.
Last season’s forwards coach, Russell Winter, is now the assistant coach for forwards and contact situations, including breakdown scenarios.
'What Robbie Fleck and Gert Smal want is that our roles fit with our personalities,' Treu said of the reshuffle.
The Stormers kick off their campaign against the Jaguares at Newlands on Saturday, 17 February at 15:05.
