Rassie Erasmus under fire as he shows support for Eddie Jones

Rassie Erasmus is very rarely out of the public eye nowadays, and it always seems to be controversial news when he’s in the spotlight.

With his Twitter feed being a constant force of intriguing content and devisive points of view, each post always generates a backlash.

Yesterday Erasmus posted a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation between Eddie Jones and himself. The screenshot from last November showed Jones checking up on Erasmus following his 10-month ban from match day activities.

The screenshot shared by Erasmus was designed to show support for Jones following his sacking by the RFU, but many have not seen it this way.

One person commented:
“What exactly are you trying to achieve showing a personal conversation between coaches. Support the man in private. It’s like giving a gift to someone in need and recording it. Then telling the world “look at me, I’m a good person aren’t i?” Get off social media Rassie.“

While another slated Jones’ reign:

“Nobody’s untouchable Rassie. The results, the form, the performances weren’t there and haven’t been there for 2 years. He’s done incredible things for English Rugby but when it’s time to move on it’s time to move on.“

Others were more supportive of the coaches conversation however:

“Good to see you guys supporting each other, I think its needed. Hope they give you the ropes so you can improve state of rugby in the world Rassie“
