SPOTLIGHT: South Africa’s Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus has revealed why Wales are such a challenging opponent.

Wales suffered a 19-23 defeat to England during the Six Nations Round three match on Saturday at Twickenham.

However, their performance received praise from the 2019 World Cup-winning Springbok coach.

Erasmus took to Twitter and posted a video, highlighting why Wales are such a tough team to beat.

The former Springbok coach also had huge praise for flyhalf Dan Biggar.

However, while the video does highlight Biggar’s skills – it also puts the spotlight on the possible high tackle from England’s Joe Marchant on Wales centre Josh Adams.

The head-on-head collision was missed by referee Mike Adamson and his team.

Erasmus recently resume his duties as Director of Rugby and some rugby activities following his suspension by World Rugby.

He was banned last year after being found guilty of misconduct by an independent committee for his hour-long video critique of match officials, particularly Australian referee Nic Berry, after the first Test in the British & Irish Lions series, which the Boks lost.

Erasmus is still suspended from all match-day activities, including coaching and media engagement, until September 30, 2022.
