EP Kings confirm coach Brent Janse van Rensburg has parted ways with the club

DECEMBER 2, 2015

Eastern Province rugby confirmed on Wednesday that coach Brent Janse van Rensburg had resigned from his post with the EP Kings.

Janse van Rensburg joined the EP Kings as their defence coach at the start of 2015 and was promoted to head coach of the squad which competed in the Premier Division of the Currie Cup.

EP Rugby president Cheeky Watson thanked Janse van Rensburg for his contribution to the EP Kings operations during his time with the union.

"We appreciate Brent's commitment to the task assigned to him and the many hours he worked in preparing the team for various competitions this year," Watson said. "We convey our best wishes to him and his family for the future."

Despite Janse van Rensburg's move, EP officials remain confident that the Southern Kings management team will soon be put in place to continue the preparations for Super Rugby.

"We are in regular discussion with the SA Rugby Union, who have taken over the organisation of the franchise, on the way forward and there is much work being done behind the scenes to ensure the Southern Kings squad is properly prepared for its return to Super Rugby in February," Watson said. "Along with SARU, we are confident of putting a strong management team in place to continue with the preparations for our re-entry into Super Rugby. In terms of specifics, any queries can be directed to SARU.

"We would like to thank the contracted players for their commitment to the Southern Kings cause and to SARU for their assistance in the preparations of the Southern Kings franchise."
