May 14, 2012 | RAMATSIYI MOHOLOA |

SPORTS Minister Fikile Mbalula is on a mission to bring former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers back into rugby.

"It is a great pleasure to announce that we are getting Peter back into rugby to help us with development projects of the sport," said Mbalula at his budget speech on Friday. "The man has a wealth of knowledge."

He said the reason government wanted to involve De Villiers was consistently unearthing rugby talent in the townships, something with which Saru has struggled.
