Rassie Erasmus to work with Boks at world cup

Western Province senior professional coach Rassie Erasmus will be part of the Springboks management team at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand later this year.

Outgoing WP Rugby chairperson Pat Kuhn confirmed to the Cape Times that the former Springbok will be one of the Springbok assistant coaches.

Kuhn added that Erasmus would return to his role with Western Province in 2012.

Springbok coach Peter de Villiers will confirm Erasmus’s appointment when he names a 49-strong provisional Rugby world cup training squad in Wellington on Wednesday.

“Letting Rassie join the Bok management is something that was asked of us, so we are doing it for the country,” Kuhn who is now part of SARU’s executive council told the Cape Times.
