Rassie drops Province

Rassie Erasmus has dropped the WPRFU in the proverbial by suddenly announcing his resignation.

The other half of the Erasmi, Rassie’s lawyer Frikkie Erasmus, yesterday confirmed the resignation indicating that “Rassie is looking at other options. There are other choices, especially overseas.”

There is some speculation that Rassie has resigned to possibly make himself available to fill the Springbok coaching position that will be filled on the 27th of January. Personally I believe the paranoia shown by Rudolph Streauli during his tenure as Springbok coach and The Erasmi’s track record of dealing with the media should be 2 deciding factors in SARU making a decision to hopefully NOT appoint Rassie and his entourage, which are sure to follow, as the Springbok coaching team.

Rassie Erasmus joined WPRFU at the end of 2007 and eventually moved on to Director of coaching for WPRFU being replaced as coach by Allister Coetzee, who it must be said has done a much better job at handling the media than the Erasmi ever did.


  • Controversial as this sounds but this guy reminds me of Hansie Cronje.

    Supposedly a good guy, but coniving and scheming as hell when it comes to benefiting themselves. 🙁

  • I wonder how the Erasmi would react if a player pulled out of the Stormers squad at this stage of the season?

  • @Franshark (Comment 3) : Alister is still the coach, but Rassie would have had some valuable input behind the scenes.

  • If you read Frikkie’s comment then one of two things is an option.

    1)Rassie didn’t jump he was pushed. Why would you jump if you haven’t already got a safe landing in place? And why would your lawyer say you are looking at options, surely the option will have been taken up before you resign.

    2) Frikkie is throwing up a smokescreen for the new job.

  • @mbay-shark (Comment 17) : If Heyneke Meyer leaves the Bulls AGAIN we will produce that rubbish rugby we dished out last year.

    He means alot to the bulls he is the coach. 🙂

    I can not take another mediocre rugby season like last years one.

  • Rassie will be Bok Director of Coaching. No way he’d leave the Stormers at this stage of the season if something else wasn’t lined up.

  • Rassie caught on a lot of crap in the background but still he did a lot of good as well.

    One major problem i see is that where Rassie goes Nienaber goes.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 37) : I dont know… but am i missing something? Where was WP/Stormers before Rassie got there? I think He did allot for the them and not getting enough credit for what he has done.

  • I see Rassie says there are oppertunities at a higher level for him.

    What is higher than SuperRugby?
    Is he gonna be the next Bok coach?

  • Comment 44, posted at 10.01.12 12:17:53 by bergshark Reply

  • @Uli (Comment 39) : compare his results with that of AC. Rassie would have benefited from some time in the coaching trenches – about 4 seasons of coaching and then DOR at WP – too fast.

  • Good Riddance Rassie of the Longknives !…you douche ! although it suits me that he has been stuck at WP as it held them back. Like the Cheetahs…WP will not feel the loss.

  • I really dislike SARU…I will be more upset with them if neither Mallet or Rassie are involved with the Boks come 27 January 2012. In these two guys we have the best SA born rugby brains in the world. The administrators haven’t a clue…Gert Smal my foot..what will he offer? More crash balls and up and unders..bull. Even one dimensional Plum offers more than Gert Smal.

  • @Uli (Comment 36) : since when is smith a self proclaimed hero, he is probably the most humble guy in the whole team, who became a hero when he became the first south african to score a century in both innings at LORDS.(hy sal altyd opkom vir sy spelers en hy stel altyd bo homself anders as sekere oud kapteine)

    I would rather take a captain that is honest and protect his players than a captain that is scheming behind my back and trying to cover it up when he is caught.

  • @BR: the odi series vs lankans will be interesting (actually thinking they will win the series ).looking fwd to see lasith malinga bowl.

  • @bergshark (Comment 52) : good to see malinga is back, it should make it a lot closer though I still think we should win fairly easly, but it will all depend on wether malinga,dilshan,sangakara ect. fire on all silinders they might sneak it.
