Boks have the talent, says Rassie
Rassie Erasmus’s reputation as a methodical coach with an eye on innovation is well founded as he leads a resurgence in fortunes for SA that has elevated them to among the favourites to lift the Rugby World Cup in Japan. “My job is to coach well and the players’ job is to play well. We do have the talent and we have worked really hard,” said Erasmus. “That is ultimately what we will be judged on. If we are lucky and we don’t get a lot of injuries, we should go deep in the tournament. And then it could be a referee’s decision, a bounce of a ball or a missed tackle.”..
