Rassie to show at Aviva, odds on . . .

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Rugby -

Rassie Eras­mus, the Spring­boks new di­rec­tor of rugby, gave an emo­tional farewell to Mun­ster on Fri­day night but we won­der if it’s the last we’ll see of him in the com­ing days.

“This has been the best 18 months of my life, not just in rugby. I have learned so much from Ir­ish peo­ple. I will trea­sure these days for the rest of my life.”

Let’s join the dots. Eras­mus’s lawyer Frikke Eras­mus has stated that “Rassie will start work­ing at South Africa Rugby on Novem­ber 1st” and the Spring­boks rolled into Dublin last night (they are train­ing in Don­ny­brook). It would be odd if Rassie and Jac­ques Nien­aber didn’t show up at the Aviva sta­dium on Satur­day. Maybe too soon to mus­cle into Al­lis­ter Coet­zee’s coach­ing box.
