PLAYER WRITE-UP
Generally regarded as one of the most astute sevens coaches in world rugby today, Paul Treu steered the Springbok Sevens team to their first ever HSBC Sevens World Series title in the 2008/2009-season as well as 14 tournament wins overall.A more professional and structured approach led to the establishment of a full time, contracted national sevens squad and a permanent training base in Stellenbosch.

As a former Springbok Sevens captain (24 tournaments, 70 tries) Treu had the experience and knowledge to take the code to another level. He has since coached the side in a total of 83 World Series tournaments, winning in Singapore (2004), London (2005, 2011), Paris (2006), Dubai (2006, 2008), Adelaide (2008 & 2009), George (2008), Las Vegas (2011, 2013), Edinburgh (2011), Tokyo (2013) and Glasgow (2013).

Treu, a Masters graduate in Educational Psychology, also took the team to Sevens World Cups in Hong Kong and Dubai and the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and Delhi, where the team won the bronze medal in 2010.

A dozen of his sevens graduates also played test match rugby for the Springboks.
