Springbok coach Jake White is attending the yearly Sanza rugby seminar in Australia that started on Monday and ends tomorrow.

The yearly seminar is intended for all national coaches from South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

Referees who are doing duty for the Super 14 campaign from the three countries are also attending.

The seminar is sanctioned by the International Rugby Board (IRB) in a move to improve the standard of the sporting code.

Rayaan Adriaanse, the South African Rugby Union media liaison officer, yesterday said the main aim of the seminar is to meet for practical sessions.

White jetted-off for Australia on Sunday after the Boks ended their England tour with an emphatic 32-7 victory over a World XV at Leicester.

The seminar is obviously held in preparation for the 2007 Super 14 season that kicks off on February 2.
