Rugbydump: Rassie Erasmus demonstrates why he is the unchallenged king of social media

Table of Contents

    South African Rugby’s Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus, is quite possibly rugby’s greatest character when it comes to social media.

    Unmatched by any other head coach or director of rugby, Erasmus has incorporated social media into his arsenal of skills aimed at disrupting the opposition.

    Once again at it this week, Erasmus made the rather funny move of following both the Irish and Scottish Rugby Union’s twitter accounts.

    Whilst following the two unions in normal circumstances wouldn’t be all that funny, the fact that they are currently the only two accounts he follows is brilliant.

    As most rugby fans will be aware, Ireland and Scotland will clash this evening in Paris in what is a crucial clash for both sides as well as Erasmus’s Springboks.

    Capable of producing a multitude of scenarios that could see any one of the three teams heading home before the quarterfinals, the match is essentially a knockout fixture.

    Further leaning into the pressure of the match, Erasmus, whilst presumably kicking his feet up at the Springboks base in the south of France, retweeted a post from Rugbypass.

    The post shows all of the permutations that would see Scotland qualify for the quarterfinals.

    The fact that Erasmus would repost shows once again that he is international rugby’s master of deflection and all round funny character!
