What would an Rassie Erasmus England XV look like? The South Africa boss has revealed he’d love to coach the men in white one day if the right opportunity cam up.
The outspoken Springboks chief only recently finished serving a two-month suspension after being found guilty of misconduct for criticising officials during last year’s British and Irish Lions tour.
“I don’t think the English people would ever want me there now,” Erasmus told the Daily Mail .
“Maybe I am wrong. I hope I am wrong. Would I coach another country? If my own people were cool with it and the other country’s people were cool with it then why not?”
Based on the sort of players favoured by the World Cup-winning coach, we think it would look a little something like this…
- 15. Freddie Steward (Leicester TIgers)
- 14. Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons)
- 11. Ollie Hassell-Collins (London Irish)
- 13. Joe Marchant (Harlequins)
- 12. Luke Northmore (Harlequins)
