Rassie Erasmus breaks silence after being banned by World Rugby

South Africa’s director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has been suspended from all rugby for two months and from involvement with the Springboks on matchdays for 12 months.

The 49-year-old has been punished for an hour-long video criticising the refereeing in July’s first-Test defeat by the British and Irish Lions.

World Rugby found the video contained “multiple abusive and insulting comments and attacks on the officials”.

And it described his offences as “especially serious and egregious”.

Erasmus, who has said he intends to appeal against the punishment, didn’t seem too bothered by the situation as he broke his silence by posting a meme on Twitter.
