WP sign Bulls kicking coach

Vlok Cilliers will join Western Province as the union's new kicking coach from 1 July.

The Blue Bulls have agreed to Cilliers's request for release. Cilliers was responsible for shaping Springbok flyhalf Morné Steyn and others into formidable tactical- and goal-kickers over the past few seasons. The Bulls will now rely on the likes of Louis Koen from the Saru Mobi-Unit as well as their own kicking consultant Derick Hougaard to guide the next generation of players.

Cilliers will be a welcomed addition to the Stormers and WP coaching staff. While the Cape side boasts a reputation for their defence, their tactical kicking has so often let them down in the big matches.
