Western Province senior professional coach Rassie Erasmus on Tuesday released the 2010 Stormers’ management team.

The structure sees the successful WP management team utilised in the 2009 Currie Cup retained for the 2010 Super 14 season, with Allister Coetzee continuing as head coach, Robbie Fleck as backline coach and Matthew Proudfoot as forwards coach.

Erasmus continues to fulfill the role of a “hands on” senior professional coach, responsible for team strategy, tactics and player recruitment.

Focus will be long term and global, ensuring positive momentum, culture and structures are retained at all levels in WP.

Erasmus will remain “hands on” from a senior team coaching viewpoint and remains responsible for team tactics and game plans. Coetzee’s role will continue to be control of day-to-day playing issues and man-management for the senior professional team.


Coetzee will be responsible for daily training and preparing the team for play, with the approval of Erasmus.


The new structure was used during the 2009 Currie Cup campaign and is based on the model successfully utilised in most Premiership football sides.


It has been approved by WP Rugby Boland Rugby and the Stormers‘ governing body.

The management structure is:

Senior professional coach: Rassie Erasmus; head coach Allister Coetzee; backline coach: Robbie Fleck; forwards coach: Matthew Proudfoot; defence coach: Jacques Nienaber; manager: Chippie Solomon; doctor: Ryan Kohler; physio: Lize van Schalkwyk; masseur: Greg Daniels; fitness: Stephan Du Toit, Greg Hechter.
