Being demoted as Bok assistant coach was a punch to my confidence
Springbok assistant coach Mzwandile Stick says his return to the Springbok team after a one year hiatus has helped refresh his mind and hunger. Stick has acknowledged Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus for bringing him back into the fold and says that Erasmus trusts him as they have worked previously. He admits that his confidence took a knock after being demoted as assistant coach in 2016 during the tenure of former coach Allister Coetzee. Stick says self-doubt did set in at the time but says that is par for the course as a coach and says he believes in his ability as a coach.
