Venter to assist Azzurri

Brendan Venter is set to assist Italy as a short-term defensive consultant during their end-of-year Tests.

Venter, who facilitated SA Rugby's recent coaching indaba, told Netwerk24 that he had informed Bok coach Allister Coetzee two months ago that he would be taking on this consultancy role.

'It’s a short-term deal, because my focus is mainly on my medical practice. In rugby, I currently only do consultation work. My focus as consultant will be on their [Italy’s] defensive structures. I’ll always have South African rugby’s best interests at heart.'
