But having spent the past year back in South Africa to be with family in difficult times. Coetzee is happy to be back on the pitch to work directly with top players. Even if shouting instructions left him a little hoarse.

“It’s been my first time on the field and that’s why my voice sounds a little different,” he explains. “But i actually enjoy being back on the pitch and dealing with an enthusiastic group of players.

“I first met them on Saturday night in Addis Ababa, in Ethiopia. After flying directly from Cape Town and therefore the flight (to Côte d’Ivoire) was there. I’ve never worked with any of the players or the management. But it’s been good with the way we’ve integrated and we’re doing well.”

One of Coetzee’s first decisions was to appoint experienced forward Pieter-Jan Van Lill. As his captain for the upcoming games in the Africa Cup of Nations. Next Saturday’s game against Ivory Coast and next Wednesday’s game against Madagascar will double as rugby World Cup 2023 qualifiers.

“We will be tested, I’m sure. If it was in Namibia, in Windhoek, I might say that the favorite tag is the right one. But coming here is different,” he said. For Rugby World Cup 2023 tickets visit our website.

I haven’t seen Côte d’Ivoire or Madagascar play, no video analysis. But I know Côte d’Ivoire is quite a big group and some of their players are playing in France for Pro D2, so it won’t be a walk and it will be a test for this side that hasn’t played together since the World Cup.”

Van Lillo, whose club side Vannes has just missed out on promotion to the Top 14 in France, is assisted by Lesley Klim, a winger who plays second tier English club rugby with the Jersey Reds.

Both players appeared at the 2019 Rugby World Cup and will form an experienced backbone of the team at the next tournament in France – when welwitschias get there.

“It is a great honor and privilege to be able to help again at international level,” Coetzee added.

“It’s a big job and I think the most important thing is to make sure Namibia qualifies for the 2023 Rugby World Cup”. For Coetzee, getting meaningful competition and the right squad profile over the next two years will be two key factors in their journey.
