NEWS: SA Rugby will only confirm their decision on Allister Coetzee's future in the new year. 

On Friday SA Rugby said they "will not be in a position to respond to questions regarding that speculation on the coaching of the national team until the New Year".

Coetzee underwent a review this week, but no details have emerged from the process. It is expected that he will be axed from his position as Springboks head coach.

According to TimesLIVE, Coetzee's future will be revealed only once legal processes have been concluded.

New Director of Rugby Johan 'Rassie' Erasmus' is believed to have met Coetzee this past Wednesday.

Full SA Rugby statement: 

"To assist media in their reporting and in light of considerable speculation, please be advised that SA Rugby will not be in a position to respond to questions regarding that speculation on the coaching of the national team until the New Year. 

"A number of meetings and reviews are in progress on all national teams after which plans for all teams in 2018 will be confirmed."
