2007 World Cup

Who has the best win-rate among Springbok coaches?

Excluding Gerrie Sonnekus, who was appointed in 1993 but never took up the appointment, Allister Coetzee is the twelfth coach to prepare South African Test teams since the end of apartheid in 1992.

The only Springbok coach with a 100% win record in Tests was Kitch Christie, whose reign included South Africa’s winning run through the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

The best South African coaching records to date are:

Kitch Christie (1994-1995) – P14 W14 100% win-rate

Nick Mallett (1997-2000) – P38 W27 71% win-rate

Jake White (2004-2007) – P54 W36 67% win-rate

Heyneke Meyer (2012-2015) – P48 W32 67% win-rate

Allister Coetzee goes into the autumn internationals with a 44% win-rate from his first nine Tests in charge (four wins from nine).
