Stephen Moore to retire from international rugby at the end of 2017

Springbok coach satisfied with outcomes of assessment camp

Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the Springbok medical and conditioning assessment camp which was held over the past four days in Stellenbosch. Coetzee described the camp a great benefit for the Boks’ upcoming Castle Lager Rugby Championship campaign.

“The camp was a very good exercise and I am very pleased that we have achieved all our goals,” said Coetzee. “The intervention was important because some of our players would have been out of action for up to 35 days, which is not ideal. The time we spent together this week gave us ample time to focus on our core skills and also our technical approach. We want to ensure we are rugby ready, well-conditioned and in a good mental space when the group assembles in two weeks’ time in Port Elizabeth.
