Swys de Bruin has resigned from the Springbok coaching team.
He told the Springbok management on Tuesday that he wanted to be released from his role as an attack consultant with the team.
SA Rugby says De Bruin made the request for “personal and medical reasons”.
De Bruin left the squad following the draw with New Zealand and has not been involved in the preparations for the match in Salta or this weekend’s Test against Argentina at Loftus Versfeld.
De Bruin also left the Lions in the midst of an away leg of the Super Rugby competition earlier this year, later admitting to suffering from stress.
Bok Coach Rassie Erasmus says he’s going to consider a few options before naming a specialist replacement coach on a short-term basis, ahead of the Rugby World Cup.
🗣 “Swys de Bruin made a great contribution to the squad in his time with us and I’d like to thank him on behalf of his fellow management and the players he has worked with in the past 12 months.”
