Rassie Erasmus Head Coach Of SA Springbok have been Fired


The national team’s second in-person alignment in Cape Town on Wednesday and Thursday created a solid foundation, and Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus thought it set a positive precedent for the upcoming season.

The camp, which came after the first alignment camp in Cape Town in March and many online alignment sessions earlier in May, was attended by 38 players.

The coaching staff conducted a series of gym and off-field planning meetings with the players to acquaint them with the organizational frameworks the squad will be using this season.

According to Erasmus, “the players were exposed to detailed aspects of the game that we would like to implement this season through this camp, which was extremely valuable.”

“During the first two alignment camps, we took a more comprehensive approach to how the coaching staff will choose teams and introduce players to the coaches and their ideas—particularly the new additions, Tony Brown, Jerry Flannery, and national laws advisor Jaco Peyper.

“We had to begin acclimating the players to our new systems as soon as possible, since our first Test is in less than a month. This will allow them enough time to become accustomed to these frameworks before we choose the team for the Wales Test and the Castle Lager Incoming Series.”

“We believe this will set us in good stead as a squad for the upcoming season,” Erasmus continued. “It was great to see the players’ enthusiasm and witness firsthand how they soaked in everything as they attempt to stake a claim for places in the national team.”

“This camp gave the coaching staff a greater grasp of the players and their abilities, giving them enough information to work on in the upcoming weeks before we convene for the first official training camp, which will be held in June.”

The Hollywoodbets Sharks players were excused from the training camp. The Sharks play Gloucester in the EPCR Challenge Cup final on Friday night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

The 2024 international season for the double Rugby World Cup champions will begin on Saturday, June 22 against Wales. Next up is the Castle Lager Incoming Series, which includes two Test matches in a row against the second-ranked Ireland in Pretoria and Durban, respectively, as well as the first-ever Test against Portugal in Bloemfontein (20 July).

The Springboks will convene in Pretoria on Sunday, June 9th, to commence their on-field training for the upcoming season. The Wales Test squad will be announced shortly after the Vodacom United Rugby Championship quarterfinals conclude on Saturday, June 8th.
