Cape Town - Rassie Erasmus is reportedly finished with South African rugby and will take up a position with Irish club Munster.

According to Rapport, Erasmus will leave his post as SA Rugby's general manager of high performance after the Springboks' June Test series against Ireland.

According to the Afrikaans newspaper, Erasmus informed SARU CEO Jurie Roux about his decision last week.

While the suspected strained relationship between Erasmus and SARU president Oregan Hoskins can be given as a reason for Erasmus’s departure, it is believed that Erasmus is upset that he was not offered the position as Springbok head coach - a role which went to Allister Coetzee.

According to Rapport’s sources, Erasmus has it as one of his goals to coach the Springboks.

Erasmus currently heads up SA Rugby's coaching mobi-unit, and it's also reported that highly rated defence guru Jacques Nienaber could follow him to Ireland.
