Rassie wants to share his 'side of the story'

SPOTLIGHT: It seems Rassie Erasmus wants to get a lot off his chest and he wants to share it with the public.


Erasmus took to social media on Sunday to tell the rugby public that he is working on a documentary.

“I’ll be able to share my side of the story,” said Erasmus.

The exact subject matter of the documentary is not yet known.

However, Erasmus’ announcement comes after he has dominated rugby headlines over the last few weeks.

South Africa’s Director of Rugby was recently 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, who coached the Springboks to the 2019 Rugby World Cup title, was banned from all rugby activity for two months.


He’s also suspended from all match-day activities, including coaching and media engagement, until September 30, 2022. SA Rugby has been fined £20 000 (ZAR 418 000).

SA Rugby and Erasmus initially made it clear that they wanted to appeal the bans, but this past Thursday it was withdrawn.
