‘I’m happy with the centres we have’ – Coetzee

Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has said he is satisfied with his centre stocks at the current moment.

The South African coach has defended his midfielders after they have been heavily criticised over their past performances. 

"I’m happy with the centres we have at the moment," Coetzee told SA Rugby Magazine

"Juan de Jongh has brought a lot of energy to that position. Jesse Kriel defended well in that recent game against Australia.

Coetzee addressed the calls to select Lions number 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg who had an incredible season with the Johannesburg outfit. 

"Rohan enjoyed a wonderful Super Rugby competition with the Lions, and is probably on the radar. But I don’t get emotional when I assess players. I look at the stats. And if you consider what Rohan can do (breaking the gain-line), we have that in Damian at the moment."
