Rassie to coach Baa-baas


Rassie Erasmus have been appointed to take charge of the Barbarians for the first time in December.

Just a few days after Erasmus Springboks manage to sneak a win against New Zealand for the the fist time in nine years, Erasmus was confirmed as the coach for the famous club.

The Barbarians will take on Argentina in the Killik Cup on December 1.

It’s a terrific honour to be invited to coach the Barbarians later this year and it should be a great occasion at Twickenham,” said Erasmus.

“The Barbarians are renowned for bringing together great individuals and the challenge for coaches is moulding them into a team that plays wonderful rugby, which they certainly showed earlier this year against England.

“There’s a lot of important games for South Africa between now and then but the chance to work with a new group and take on Argentina once more will be a great end to the year.”

Erasmus will coach a squad full of international greats and three Springboks have already accepted invitations to line-up against the Pumas – Handré Pollard (fly-half), Eben Etzebeth (lock) and Tendai Mtawarira (prop) will join the BaaBaas in London after South Africa’s November internationals against England, France, Scotland and Wales.

They will be joined by Wallaby scrum-half Will Genia, who will be in Europe with Australia for their Tests against Wales, Italy and England.
