LOUIS LUYT, the South African Rugby Football Union president, has withdrawn his support for the Springbok management team of Jannie Engelbrecht and Ian McIntosh following the Test series defeat in New Zealand. 'They have their jobs until the 19th, but I will not be supporting them,' Luyt said. Sarfu's executive committee meets on 19 August and it is now certain that the search for a new manager and coach will head the agenda.
