Rassie Erasmus offers fascinating insight into what Eddie Jones brings to the Wallabies

World Cup-winning Springbok coach turned director of rugby Rassie Erasmus was effusive in his praise of Australian counterpart Eddie Jones.

Speaking at a Springbok press conference, Rassie said: ‘As a South African working with South Africans, will get the best out of South Africans.’

‘I always feel an Australian working with an Australians will always get the best out of an Australians because they just know how that nation works.’ Erasmus said.

Reflecting on his own journey back to South African Rugby, the Bok boss said: ‘I understood at Munster. Myself and Jacques, it took us a few months before we actually fully understood how do they think, how do they operate, what is important or not important to them.’

‘I think the big thing with Eddie and Australia is that he knows the set-up, he’s been there, and he’s been close with them.

‘He wouldn’t struggle to slot in. I think the interesting thing will be what I was trying to work out is where were all of the assistant coaches were coaching the last few years.

‘Surely those coaches will bring in (their expertise), there is a maul expert, there is a scrum coach, there is a line-out coach, there is a learning coach, there is a backline coach.

‘I think where those guys come from and how they bring their flavour to the party because I know Eddie works hard, Eddie drives standards, so it’ll be interesting to see how those coaches fit into place.’ Erasmus concluded.

The Springboks will host the Wallabies in Pretoria at Loftus Versfeld on July 8th at 5.05 pm local time.
