Profile
I'm currently 27 years old and started coaching at the age of 20. I played rugby for Western Province U/19 and stopped playing shortly thereafter due to injury. 

I coached the 1st XV of Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch for 2 years (2015-2016) which is one of the renowned and top rugby schools in South Africa. I am a back-line coach and also a kicking coach. 

If i had to describe myself: I'm a very innovative person and always strive to learn. I am very disciplined and you'll never find me being late or not pitching. I like to analyse the game and always improvise where necessary. I firmly believe in less is more. My key coaching points will be in decision making and understanding of the game (why and when certain things happen).But i also strive to keep the door open for the players to make the right decision when certain opportunities come to the fore, and for that it is important that we as coaches putt players in all kinds of different scenarios and under as much pressure as possible. I also strive in creating all round players but keeping in mind that each player is a master in his main job for his position. In a nutshell, i coach to first catch correct before passing...
