Erasmus outlined what he and the team are doing behind the scenes in a podcast for SA Rugby as well as reflecting on that memorable day six months since the Springboks’ 32-12 Rugby World Cup final victory over England in Japan.
Apart from talking about the Boks’ planning for 2020, the roles of the Springbok coaches, plans across SA Rugby’s national teams and Elite Player Development programmes, Erasmus also lifts the lid on spending his lockdown, and he reveals the name of a former teammate he would love to have coached.
“From our side, we are really working so hard, and I want to guarantee our supporters, as soon as the Springboks are back on the field, we will make you proud like we did last year,” said Erasmus.
“As we said last year if we work hard and play well, and our fans keep on supporting us and the media reports well, we really are stronger together. And nothing should change because of this virus.”
More podcasts are being planned for the coming weeks until the end of the local season, with news, interviews and more from the Springboks, Junior Boks, Blitzboks, the national women’s teams and local competitions.
South Africa went into lockdown on March 27, with some restrictions eased on May 1 which included an exercise allowance window from 6 am to 9 am daily.
