Chat with black bulls
It’s obviously been tough times for Springbok rugby, but there is an air of optimism around Rassie Erasmus’s appointment as Springbok coach.
It’s a tough position he’s in - he’s at the head of an international team where everyone wants results.
However, Rassie attained some positive results in European rugby with Munster and it will be interesting to watch as his tenure takes shape.
When it comes to Springbok and South African rugby there is plenty of history and expectation that goes with it.
He is consistent and that is what the All Blacks are after.
Getting my message across to different people is something I have really enjoyed and have developed within myself.
When I first made the transition from playing to coaching it was a big learning curve for me.
At times, I would think to myself: Should I get on the field and physically get my point across? I now coach using diagrams and by explaining on the white board.
However, one game doesn’t make a season and the boys have to continue to put in the hard work.
They cannot just rely on a positive performance and think that everything is cured.
The challenge for the playing group is to repeat that winning performance week-in and week-out.
