Changes need to be made in Springbok's approach

The South African rugby coach, Peter de Villiers, looks to be on shakey ground, with many South Africans calling for him to take responsibility for the Springbok's recent form.

The Springbok's 29-22 loss to the All Blacks in Johannesburg yesterday was their fourth defeat in a row, raising calls for de Villiers to be replaced.

The South African sports journalist, Dan Retief, says while that may not be the best approach, clearly something needs to be done.

He says the game plan and players fitness needs to be looked at.
