“Absolutely embarrassing” – Rassie Erasmus releases ANOTHER video aimed at officials

In the early hours of Sunday morning, Rassie Erasmus quite clearly shared a sarcastic message on Twitter, which said in part: “We just have to fix these fundamental errors like tackle technique and simple passing. Sorry!”

The tweet also included a video showing Cheslin Kolbe on the receiving end of a dangerous forearm to the face early on in the game.

Responding to the video, one fan wrote: “Seriously, if you want a perfect referee you’re in the wrong game. Coach knowing there will be fine margins and errors. Be the best by a bigger margin and it won’t matter. This behaviour just exposes that you’re rattling Rassie. I love your coaching but I’m hating it lately.”

“Bang on cue, after his team and his coaching fails, to whinge publicly about the ref. This charlatan will be no loss to this great game when SARU finally realize how much he’s holding back so many incredibly talented players,” commented a second.

A third added: “Absolutely embarrassing. You lost, accept the loss gracefully and improve in the areas you need to. The game was not lost due to these two decisions. I hope world rugby throw the book at you. South African rugby is better than this.1918,”

“Erasmus being a bad loser again. Bitter as always,” commented another Twitter user.

A fans poll has ranked rugby’s five biggest d***heads

We all love to hate. For every force of good there is in rugby union, there is an equal force of bad to provide balance. A yin to their yang. For every hero, a villain.

As much fun as it is to see the sport’s most treasured icons succeed, audiences can sometimes take equal pleasure in seeing a star plummet from the heavens and fall to the depths below.

We’ve ran a poll to discover who, whether it be for their antics on or off the pitch, have developed an unenviable reputation in the game.

Find out the top five below.

It got so bad that popular online personality and diehard Scotland fan Glove39 made a video called ‘birdman’ mocking the way in which he always raises his arms in frustration to officials.
