MJ Mentz will be the Pumas head coach for the duration of the 2015 season.
Mentz replaces Jimmy Stonehouse, who has joined the Toshiba Brave Lupus in Japan.
Corné Steenkamp will be the Pumas conditioning and forward coach, with a backline coach still to be appointed.
'I think for the Ermelo community, and that of the whole of Mpumalanga, it is a great honour to have Mentz as head of the coaching staff and supported by another former Ermelo resident, in Steenkamp,' said Pumas MD Pieter Burger. 'He is young, but has the talent and experience to take this squad to the next level with the support of the rest of his professional management team.'
