Rassie Erasmus: I owe Divvy a lot
WATCH: World Cup-winning coach Rassie Erasmus owes a lot of his success to former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers when the latter asked him to join the Springboks at the 2011 World Cup.
“I owe him a lot because that was a great experience,” Erasmus said.
“I learnt a lot from Peter [about] how he managed that specific group because there was a lot of strong personalities and there’s a lot of things I’ve certainly learnt from him and I’m trying to incorporate a lot of that into what I’m doing currently.”
The video, released by Peter de Villiers on social media, sees Erasmus speaking about his time working alongside the former Springbok coach and sheds light on the way De Villiers managed his group of players.
Watch until the end to hear what he has to say about the infamous quarterfinal against Australia.
