Rassie Erasmus is next Bok coach

I am unable to reveal my sources, but suffice to say that I have it via two independent and previously reputable authorities that Rassie Erasmus will be officially unveiled as the new Springbok coach in the near future.

It seems that the former Cheetahs, Golden Lions and Springbok player will be taking over from Peter de Villiers when his contract ends at the end of the year. He has been working as the senior professional coach at Western Province and the Stormers and was the Boks technical advisor at the recent 2011 Rugby World Cup.

This post will either be trumpeted loudly upon his appointment or will mysteriously disappear should anyone else get the job.

You heard it here first. Again.
