Pienaar to coach at Ulster?

Date published: April 1 2017

Departing Ulster legend Ruan Pienaar plans to come back to Ulster as a coach after his playing days have come to an end.

Pienaar who has been at Ulster since 2010 will be leaving the club after the IRFU decided to end his contract at Ulster in order to provide an opportunity for an Irish scrum-half to come through ranks.

The former Springbok scrum-half explained that he would want to come back as a youth coach.

“I would like to come back to Ulster in a coaching capacity,” Pienaar told BBC.

“I would see my starting point as an underage or youth coach.”

Pienaar has had an illustrious career after gaining 88 caps for the Springboks and 137 points for Ulster collecting 882 points during his stint in Ireland.
