Hlungwani, Levy join Stormers coaching staff
The Cape franchise announced yesterday that former Western Province lock Rito Hlungwani has been appointed as the new Stormers forwards coach, while Labeeb Levy is now the skills coach and technical analyst.
Hlungwani has been the head coach at Primrose and Villager Rugby Clubs, and an assistant coach for the WP Rugby Challenge team.
Levy - a former loose forward and rugby educator - has coached at virtually all levels at Province, including the women’s and men’s senior teams.
Levy has been a stalwart of the South African touch rugby set-up, so his skills knowledge will come in handy in helping the Stormers unlock defences.
Apart from new head coach John Dobson, the rest of the management includes Dawie Snyman (backs), Norman Laker (defence), Riefaat Jappie (strength and conditioning) and Chippie Solomon (team manager).
Hanyani Shimange (scrum) and Gareth Wright (kicking) will continue as consultants for all WP professional teams, including the Stormers.
