New Rassie video targets foul play, confirming fake twitter account was his

Former Springbok coach and current director of rugby (and chief waterboy) Rassie Erasmus has taken to twitter to highlight what he views as foul play by British & Irish Lions prop Mako Vunipola.ย

Erasmus has had a fair bit of criticism from various circles of late due to his on-field involvement when South Africa ‘A’, and then the Springboks, faced the Lions.

In the last day or so it also appears as though the World Cup winning coach has been tweeting from a fake account, posting videos that highlight referee inconsistencies against the Springboks.

This followed the loss to the Lions in the first Test in Cape Town, and included a video from an alias account (see below) that appeared fairly well edited and he replied directly to.

Today, Erasmus has gone one step further and posted a video directly on his own twitter account, basically giving up the ruse and having no qualms about fans or officials realising that it’s he who posted the other videos.

His main grievance this time, the Vunipola incident with Cheslin Kolbe.

Erasmus was unhappy with how Kolbe was played in the air and then picked up despite him looking like he may have been hurt from the hard landing.

It’s a surprising move from someone in Erasmus’s position but clearly, he feels as though it’s worth it and is perhaps attempting some kind of mind games with the officials ahead of the next Test.

The tweet naturally caused a fair bit of reaction.

The comical nature of his tweets, from all accounts, has not been lost on some.

And if it wasn’t obvious to you already, the way this and the previous ‘Jaco Johan’ video are edited is basically exactly the same.

So South Africa’s director of rugby is now a twitter troll, of sorts? Here’s looking forward to the rest of the series!

The second Test match will take place next Saturday, 31 July in Cape Town.
