In July of 2012 Antonio Lopez Habas came on board as the new Head Coach, but only staying 6 months. Clive Barker took over in January 2013. Once again in less than 6 months the coaching staff changed and Gavin Hunt stepped into his new role as the teams Head Coach.

The instability was evident in the Clever Boys game as they came in 12th place in the 2011/12 season. But they picked themselves up the following season finishing in 4th place. Under the coaching hand of Gavin Hunt the Clever Boys progressed even further to third place in the 2013/2014 season.

In the same season the Clever Boys made it to the finals of the Nedbank Cup, losing to Orlando Pirates.
