Former Blue Bulls, Sharks and Springbok scrumhalf Robert du Preez takes over from another former Sharks player Brad McCleod-Henderson as head coach at Rovers with McCleod –Henderson moving to Hilton College as head of rugby at the famous school.
Robin Swanepoel one of the most capped forward players out of Border and the man responsible with the Pringle brothers Richard and David for the invention of the now popular scrum machine Big Dog becomes the forward coaching advisor for the whole club. Michael Dick, Mike Vowles and Malcolm Philips take over the reigns with the Under 19’s.
The best news out of the Rovers camp is the announcement of the rejuvenation of Mini Rugby at the club, which will be headed up by Pierre Puren. Mini Rugby in KZN started in the early seventies at Rovers under the legendary late Dr. Kevin ‘Laser’ Taylor so the news was indeed very pleasing to many of their old boys.
