Venter will continue to practise as a medical doctor in his native South Africa while working for London Irish.The former Springboks centre and London Irish player-coach takes on a role similar to the one he performed at Saracens from early 2011.”I’ll come over to the club once a month to work with the coaches and to help with the planning,”.”I won’t be hands-on from day-to-day. I’ve spent some time with the players already and the reality is we need to crawl before we start running.”That’s maybe been our problem all along.
