Boks' scrum guru to join England?
NEWS: The Springboks could be without Matt Proudfoot’s services next season.
According to South African newspaper the Rapport, the Bok forwards coach is set to join England’s coaching team, which is led by head coach Eddie Jones.
Proudfoot, who is known as a ‘scrum guru’, played a big role in the Springboks’ success. The Springboks were dominant in the set-piece during their 2019 World Cup-winning campaign, especially in the Final against England.
Proudfoot’s contract expired after the World Cup. Backs coach Mzwandile Stick is set to stay in the Bok coaching group.
The Springboks are expected to confirm their coaching group for 2020 later this month with Jacques Nienaber set to become the new head coach.
A report over the weekend added that former Southern Kings head coach Deon Davids will now be included as an assistant coach.
Meanwhile, England begin their Six Nations campaign against France in Paris on Sunday, February 2.
