Johann van Graan

Head Coach

Johann van Graan joined the province in November 2017, having signed a contract as Head Coach until June 2020.

Van Graan joins the province from his role as Springboks forward coach, where he played a key role in developing the forwards and attack for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, when South Africa collected the bronze medal.

In 2009 and 2010 he secured Super Rugby honours with the Bulls, as forwards and attack coach.

This appointment has resulted in the restructuring of the coaching ticket, with Johann taking on the same responsibilities as Rassie Erasmus. Johann will work alongside Rassie, subject to obtaining a work permit which the province hopes will be attained by mid-November, to ensure a seamless transition.
