Erasmus hard at work for Springboks


It is all hands on deck for Rassie Erasmus as he is busy preparing for the English that will be touring South Africa in June.

The English team will be playing three test against the Springboks as we expect Rassie Erasmus and a team of coaches to take charge of the Springboks after Coetzee has left.

It is speculated that Erasmus will be in charge of the Springboks till Japan 2019 World Cup.

We already saw Erasmus in the stands at Twickenham when England hosted Wales in their Six Nations match.

Erasmus are set to meet with a few overseas based players while he is in England and rumours had it will include players like Vincent Koch (Saracens), Willie le Roux and Juan de Jongh (both Wasps), Faf de Klerk (Sale), Frans Steyn, Bismarck du Plessis, Jan Serfontein (all Montpellier), Duane Vermeulen and JP Pietersen (both Toulon) and Pat Lambie (Racing 92).

It is also believed that Erasmus will visit Japan to investigate the stadiums, towns and accommodation for the World Cup

The test against England later this year is scheduled for Ellis Park in Johannesburg on June 9, followed by Tests at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein (June 16) and Newlands in Cape Town (June 23).

  1. Yip, the English are in for a surprise with Rassie I reckon. Those are the right foreign players he’s talking too, especially for developing a bigger RWC squad, but I hope our youngsters also get a shot.
