New coach to join Stormers

Former Blues coach Paul Feeney is set to join Western Province and the Stormers as an assistant.

According to, Feeney will be focusing on attack and skills under head coach Robbie Fleck.

Feeney spent 10 days with Western Province at the end of August after completing a one-year stint as Blues skills coach under Tana Umaga, and is now in line to take on a full-time role in Cape Town.

'I'm excited by the opportunity to go and coach in South Africa,' Feeney told Fairfax Media. ''When you're a young kid you talk about South Africa and New Zealand all the time. Now I've got the chance to go over there and see what they do first hand. I'm going to learn a lot and hopefully I can help them as well.'
