Rassie Erasmus to quit SA rugby

Cape Town – Rassie Erasmus is set to leave South Africa to coach abroad. The South African Rugby Union’s (SARU) General Manager of High Performance reportedly withdrew from the race to replace outgoing Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer earlier this week, leaving Allister Coetzee as arguably the only plausible candidate for the vacant post.

The Cape Argus has since been reliably informed that Erasmus made the decision after becoming disillusioned with the political infighting between the union presidents, and the tug of war between SARU president Oregan Hoskins and CEO Jurie Roux.

Erasmus was not available for comment, but it is understood that he has shortlisted offers from clubs in Europe and Japan for serious consideration.
