According to media speculation, Allister Coetzee’s days as Springbok coach can be counted in weeks and not months. Reports indicate that Coetzee could be fired by early December.

This comes after Ireland recorded their biggest ever win over the Springboks on Saturday. The Irish team inflicted a humiliating 38-3 drumming on what seemed a hapless South African team.

The Sunday Times reported that SA Rugby has lost patience with Coetzee. Sources indicate that SA Rugby president Mark Alexander had a heated exchange with Coetzee in the hours after the record defeat.

Briefly.co.zalearned from Sport24.com that SA Rugby’s executive committee will meet in early December to confirm the termination of Coetzee’s contract.

The under-fire coach has chalked up a number of records since taking the helm in 2016 although none of these records are ones which any coach would want to present on his CV. Coetzee has won only nine out of 22 Test matches as coach.

Some of the other firsts for a South African coach are

First ever defeat to Ireland in South Africa

First ever defeat to Italy

First ever away defeat to Argentina

Worst ever year in Springbok history - 4 wins from 12 Tests

Biggest ever losing margin against the All Blacks 57-0

Most points conceded against the All Blacks 57

The most points ever conceded against Ireland 38

Biggest losing margin against Ireland 35

Coetzee now has the worst record of any national coach who has been in command for 22 Tests having won just nine, drawn two and lost 11 matches. He has a win ratio of just 41%.
