• Leonard to coach Bulls pack

    Former Springbok loose forward Anton Leonard will serve as the Vodacom Bulls' new forwards coach in next season's Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

    The Bulls confirmed their management team for next season on Monday, with Leonard set to assist head coach Nollis Marais, while David Manual will be the backline coach.

    John-William Meyer and Divan Strydom will form part of the technical team to assist the coaches, and will also act as kicking coaches, while Gary Botha (scrums and breakdown) and Pine Pienaar (defence) will be involved with the Super Rugby, Currie Cup and junior sides.

    Former Blue Bulls U21 coach, Hendré Marnitz, has been promoted to Currie Cup coach for 2016, and he will be assisted by Denzil Frans (forwards) and Hayden Groepes (backs and technical).
